US - The American Meat Science Association is partnering with the National Pork Board (NPB) and the US Meat Export Federation (USMEF) to offer the first PORK 505 short course, a new, internationally focused course that will be held June 6-7 at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Nebraska.

PORK 505 is a day and half programme that will take place just prior to the World Pork Expo in Des Moines, Iowa.

The course is designed to update participants on quality standards, culinary techniques, international marketing and other important issues facing the pork industry worldwide.

Key PORK 505 topics include:

  • Hands-on international carcass fabrication methods
  • Pork palatability and quality standards
  • Hands-on culinary demonstration and preparation of international recipes using fabricated cuts
  • Niche/specialty products that appeal to the worldwide marketplace
  • Currently exported offal products and their importance in the worldwide marketplace
  • Hot topics in the international pork industry

Pork 505 will provide the latest information available and should be attended by anyone involved in the production, processing and marketing of pork.

The programme begins at 10:00 am on 6 June and it will conclude at noon on 7 June leaving plenty of time for World Pork Expo attendees to make the short three hour drive to Des Moines for the opening event at 8:00AM the next day.
