Ontario Pork will launch a new, modern Pig Mobile educational trailer at the Royal Winter Fair in November.
Ontario Pork’s Pig Mobile program has been an agricultural leader since it was first launched almost 20 years ago. The original trailer has helped to build bridges between rural and urban audiences at large and small events across Ontario.
But as the industry shifts, so must the face of public education.
This modern Pig Mobile celebrates the care and commitment of everyone involved in raising pigs and producing high-quality pork — from farmers, vets, and nutritionists, to truckers, processing workers, retailers, and chefs. It also highlights on-farm innovation, environmental practices, career opportunities, and the commitment to quality that exists across the pork supply chain.
The new unit incorporates an expandible farrowing stall and monitoring technology, a 75-inch video screen to share industry stories, and hands-on activities that bring the pork supply chain to life.
Visitors to the Pig Mobile at fairs and events across the province love to hear from people directly involved in the supply chain. Authentic, real-life conversations have more meaningful and lasting impact than any video, poster, or static display.
We encourage industry and producer members to sign up for a paid shift at the new Pig Mobile when it goes to the Royal Winter Fair in November. You can sign up for a shift at this link: https://volunteersignup.org/JTECW
