DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Some of Iowa's top pork producers are meeting to talk about their product.

The Iowa Pork Producers Association meets Thursday in Des Moines to conclude its annual Iowa Pork Congress. The event features a trade show with 275 exhibitors from the U.S. and abroad.

The event, which began Wednesday, will feature a dozen free business seminars and training sessions for producers.

Several top producers from surrounding Midwest states also are expected to attend.

The association says the pork industry contributes nearly $5 billion annually to Iowa's economy.
