Pork Month

During a ceremony at the State Capitol on Friday, Governor Hutchinson joined agriculture leaders, industry partners, and pork producers  as he declared October as Pork Month in Arkansas. The Pork Month proclamation highlights Arkansas’s pork industry and its value to Arkansas’s economy and agriculture industry.

“The hog has long been a special animal for so many Arkansans across our great state, and today we recognize those farm families and businesses dedicated to providing consumers with a nutritious and safe supply of pork products,” said Governor Hutchinson. “Hard work and long hours go into swine production so consumers enjoy their favorite pork meats.”

Arkansas produces more than 1.2 million hogs annually contributing to the average American’s diet of approximately 50 pounds of pork per person.   MORE
