Event Description

The 41st Ontario Pork Congress (OPC) will take place June 18 and 19 at the Stratford Rotary Complex in Stratford, Ontario. It is the opportunity for the swine sector to assemble all of the different sectors of the swine industry; it is the biggest swine show in Canada. The Congress enables swine farmers to get information on the latest pork issues and learn about new technologies.

More than 200 exhibitors and retailers will represent both the domestic and international pork industry, exhibitors include feed and animal health products, to barn ventilation technology and sow housing equipment retailers. According to show organizers, one of the main aims of this year’s Congress is to provide a well-rounded event that will cater to both a producer-focused and general audience.

“We’re basically trying to make this year’s congress a greater hog experience for the people that come,” he explains. “We’re introducing some new initiatives and bringing back popular events from last year’s Congress to key up interest among the pork producers, as well as the general public.” For more information, be sure to visit www.porkcongress.on.ca
