AM1390 KRFO are teaming up with Fareway Meat and Grocery of Owatonna to celebrate National Pork Month this October. Listen each weekday between 6AM-6PM for your chance to call in and play pork trivia and win pork products all month long. This week we're giving away seasoned pork patties. We'll be giving away a different pork product each week.

The pork industry generates 7.28 billion dollars in economic activity in Minnesota. Pork represents 42.6% of all meat eaten in the world and ham remains the number one sandwich.

As far as Minnesota counties go, Martin ranks number one in the state and number six in the nation with latest figures showing 812,229 hogs. Blue Earth County checks in at number 16 nationally with 554,230 hogs. Mower ranks 36th nationally with Freeborn at number 37 and Waseca County is number 62. So pork is a big time venture in Southern Minnesota.

Remember to listen to AM1390 for your chance to win pork this October.
