News & Views: WPX Reminders

The 2012 World Pork Expo is expecting record numbers. We need your assistance to make this event come together. If you are not bringing all the animals you entered, please contact the NSR/NJSA office, the CPS office and ABA office and let the staff know what your entry numbers will be. Thanks! 

Here are some helpful tips for junior and seniors exhibitors: 
  • 1) Please review the WPX health regulations (located on the NSR website and page 73 in the March issue of the Seedstock EDGE). All animals must be tested individually for Pseudorabies, and you must present this test chart along with your certificate of veterinary inspection at the vet station check point.  
  • 2) There is a designated parking area for trailers this year. After unloading your entries, proceed west on Dean Avenue (stoplight), turn left (south) on E. 30th street, travel on 30th over the overpass and at the intersection of Scott and E. 30th street, turn right. There is a white rock parking lot that will be used for trailer parking. The map for this parking lot can be found on the NSR WPX maps and directions page
  • 3) Junior Exhibitors: When loading out your entries Friday evening, you will get your trailer out of the lot at Scott Avenue, proceed north to University Avenue, turn right (east) on University, go to gate 2, you will park in the north parking lot there. From there, you will be directed to the swine barn for load out. This is a new procedure but should speed up and eliminate traffic jams for the load out.

While at the World Pork Expo, be sure to visit the America's Best Genetics display area in the cattle barn located directly north of the swine barn.

You can download a full WPX schedule as part of the new World Pork Expo smartphone app.

Safe travels, and I look forward to seeing you all at the Expo.
