A pre-World Pork Expo event will be held to give the esteemed members of the agricultural community a tour of facilities that are important to the industry, according to Pork Network magazine.
The news source reported that this tour will give attendees a chance to learn about the Midwestern agricultural experience and will take visitors around to specific sites that are important to the industry.
"These tours are a perfect way for World Pork Expo attendees to fully experience the diversity of agriculture here in the nation’s breadbasket," Bryan Humphreys, National Pork Producers Council director of grassroots organization LEADR, told the magazine. "And once the tours are finished, participants will enjoy free admission to World Pork Expo."
Many of these visitors will be familiar with and have used John Deere equipment, but this tour provides them with a chance to see the company's John Deere Pavilion museum, due to popular demand from members.
Recently redesigned, the Pavilion gives visitors a chance to see modern-day and concept machines in their working environments along with a historical summation of the company's role in American agriculture.
