Hope to see many Nebraskans among the Nebraska pork producers who can share their story on how they care for their pigs, how the association’s celebrating its 50th anniversary, the new pork campaign and the industry’s exciting new temperature change! 

Not only are exciting things happening in the pork industry, but it can also help Nebraskans watch their waistlines this holiday season. Compared with pork from the 1950s, today’s pork has slimmed down considerably, with 75 percent less fat. In fact, a study released in 2006 by the USDA reveals six common cuts of fresh pork are leaner today than they were 15 years ago – on average about 16 percent lower in total fat and 27 percent lower in saturated fat. The leaner pork is the result of new technology in hog production and superior genetics.

Check out Pork. Be Inspired to see the new USDA guidelines and inspiring recipes for pork lovers of all ages.
