Who we are

What is the Minnesota Pork Board?

The Minnesota Pork Board offers unique value to producers and consumers through research, education, and promotion of pork. We work to elevate the confidence of Minnesota consumers in pork and the families who raise it.

By the numbers

Minnesota is a Leader in Pork Production

We rank second-highest in value and number of market pigs raised in the country. In 2023, Minnesota pig farmers successfully marketed an impressive 16.73 million pigs, a testament to the state's thriving pork industry. With over 3,000 pig farms operating within its borders, Minnesota sustains a robust and dynamic network of family pig farmers dedicated to ensuring the next generation's freedom to operate by caring for Minnesota's pigs, people, and the planet.
