Hub City Goes Hog Wild
Back in May, area pork producers gave away over 13,000 pounds of pork in the 2020 Hog Wild Giveaway. The event took place at the old Shopko parking lot on US Highway 281. Following social distance guidelines, hundreds of cars were directed to line up in the parking lot to receive their 20-pound box of various pork products. The pork came from South Dakota producers in the Aberdeen Area and was processed at SDSU with the help of South Dakota Pork Producers. The goal of the Hog Wild Giveaway was to promote local pork producers and to showcase their products to the community. // — Karlie Spiry
