Podcast makes its way into pork industry
The US Pork Checkoff launched a new initiative for
providing information about the pork industry: the Pork Pod, offering
Podcasts, being audio files available online, can be downloaded from the
Internet and subsequently listened to on a computer, an iPod or an MP3
â€œThis will be an easy and convenient way for producers to hear from experts
in the industry on current issues and hot topics in pork production,â€ said
Teresa Roof, public relations manager at the US National Pork Board (NPB).
"Our podcasts will resemble long-form radio interviews and will use experts
on topics such as exports, PCVAD, animal indentification, the new nutrient
database, PQA Plus and more."
The site offers an RSS-feed option, warning regular users that the site is
updated with the latest additions.
Items last approximately seven to ten minutes.
