They have everything Ontario Pork! Bacon Maker Classic (pig showing), Rib-Eating Contest, Hog Jog, Taste of the Best, Pig Art, Education and more. It is more than just a trade show, attendees get to be involved in all aspects of hog production. Very entertaining! - http://www.porkcongress.on.ca/

Hog Jog is a Success for Shelterlink

The Hog Jog has an excellent mission, OPIC’s Pork for a Cause Hog Jog is a 3.5km run/walk and 10km run held each year during the Ontario Pork Congress. The 2016 Hog Jog was partnered with Shelterlink. The mission of Shelterlink is to provide Perth County youth ages 16-24, who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, with shelter, basic needs, community aid and advocacy services.

This years run was a huge success for Shelterlink, with 400 runners with a record of $45,000 being raised! See more info in the video below. Video: Farms.com
