The Oklahoma Pork Council is a producer organization representing the interests all of pork producers throughout Oklahoma.
Through federally collected Checkoff monies we are able to promote pork and pork products, fund research, and educate consumers and producers about the pork industry.
Also, we are able to provide consumers with current food safety information, nutritional value, and preparation tips for pork products. This includes recipes, cookbooks, educational materials for classrooms and promotional materials.
