About Conference

National Pork Industry Conference

The National Pork Industry Conference (NPIC) was the vision of Larry Graham and has roots back to the early 90’s. The current generation of NPIC was founded by Larry & Jean Graham in 1996 and was initially held at various upper Midwest locations. As the conference attendance grew, it ultimately found a home at the Four Seasons Resort, then Tan-Tar-A at Lake of the Ozarks, before moving in 2010 to its current location at the Kalahari Waterpark and Conference Center in Wisconsin Dells, WI.

The NPIC conference is built upon three pillars: education, networking, and family. The conference offers a wide array of sessions focused on current swine industry topics, nutrition, health, safety, marketing and more. 21st Century Strategic Forums, L.L.C. produces and hosts the conference and partners with leading allied industry companies to deliver what some call, “The Best Pork Producer Event in North America”.

The National Pork Industry Conference is held annually the 2nd week of July and attracts 900 attendees with most producer participants representing the Top 150 Pork Production Systems in North America.


Get The Kids Involved


The National Pork industry Conference (NPIC) is partnering with Smithfield Foods and the National Pork Board to offer the 2022 Youth Workshop event to elementary and middle school-age youth.

The workshop will be an exciting and interactive way to get our youth involved in the pork industry – and have some fun along the way!

Youth will learn about the pork supply chain, food safety and handling and have a chance to cook up their very own pork pizza creation.
