The Kansas Pork Association participated in Ag Day at the South Steps last week as part of the South Steps Fridays series hosted by the Kansas Department of Administration. The event is held at the historic Kansas Statehouse in downtown Topeka and highlights different industries and groups each week, offering a variety of information booths and activities to learn more about the state–from travel and tourism to education, health and more.
The KPA had the model pig barns on display and also gave out bacon and bacon jerky samples. Kansas Corn Growers Association and Kansas Soybean also shared the space with KPA.
“There’s nothing more important than knowing where your food comes from,” said Jodi Oleen, KPA Director of Consumer Outreach. “South Steps Fridays gave us the opportunity to connect people who cook with people who farm. We were honored to be among the groups representing agriculture in Kansas.”
