PPPC begins pork month celebration with Penn State Rib Cookoff

The Pennsylvania Pork Producers Council elevates pork promotion efforts for the month of October. Declared as pork month, October is an opportunity for the PPPC to highlight how pork is a versatile, nutritious protein choice for families. With several consumer-focused efforts happening throughout the month, PPPC, supported by the Pork Checkoff, works to position pork as the protein of choice all year long.

To kickoff the celebrations, PPPC is the headline sponsor for the 2023 Penn State Rib Cookoff. Happening Oct. 14 during PSU FanFest, the Rib Cookoff gives local restaurants the opportunity to battle it out for the title of Best Ribs. The winner will be presented with a trophy during the on-field recognition at half-time of the PSU Football game against the University of Massachusetts.

Swineherd health is a pressing concern across the globe, and stringent biosecurity measures have been implemented to maintain the robustness and productivity of pig populations. In this episode, I spoke with Dr. Luc Dufresne. Our conversation highlights the shift towards biocontainment for a more dynamic approach, emphasizing a two-way disease prevention strategy—addressing both incoming and outgoing risks. He warns against macro-level biosecurity pitfalls and stresses the importance of understanding disease epidemiology. He advocates for adaptable, science-based strategies rather than blindly adhering to tradition.
