U.S. Pork Center Of Excellence updates Pork Information Gateway
The U.S. Pork Center of Excellence has updated the Pork Information Gateway to create a more user-friendly website. The updates feature a new site design and a home page featuring up-to-date pork headlines that can be seen at http://isu.porkgateway.org.
"The U.S. Pork Center of Excellence and all its partners are always looking for ways to improve collaboration and communication," said David Meisinger, U.S. Pork Center of Excellence executive director. "The Pork Information Gateway has become a popular website with more than two million hits last year and more than 10,000 pieces of information. We wanted to make it more modern in its appeal, more user-friendly in its application and more complete in its content. We are addressing all of these points to make this popular website more useful."
New features on the site include a home page featuring pork headlines and commentaries; links to news, markets and weather information; and drop-down menus to organize content. Other changes include the addition of a "Niche Production" domain and updates to PIG Opportunities. The website updates greatly enhance the scope of information available to U.S. pork producers by providing a more usable and intuitive information gateway.
PIG was launched in 2006 and is an online resource tool that is free to the U.S. Pork Industry. To view the upgrades go to http://isu.porkgateway.org. You must be registered to see much of the content. Registration is free and your information is secure.
The U.S. Pork Center of Excellence was established in 2005 as a public/private partnership to bring together academic expertise in research, teaching and extension related to pork production.
