We are very glad that the BOS Center in Springfield, IL, is back to Illinois Pork Expo on February 22 & 23, 2022. The IL Pork Expo event is aimed at presenting and bringing together all the top producers and companies in our industry. Agriculture remains a major driver in Illinois. We continue to be ranked fourth in the nation in pork production, particularly in the pork industry; we generate over two billion pounds of pork each year. Hog production and processing also contributes over $1.8 billion to the state’s economy and boosts workforce in Illinois by supporting more than 57,000 jobs.
