The Illinois State Fair is underway, beginning its ten day run Friday. After you get your fill of elephant ears and deep fried snicker bars, head over to the commodities pavilion, across from the grandstand, for some real food brought to you by the Illinois Pork Producers, Beef Producers and Lamb and Wool Producers. Mike Borgic of the IPPA says, as usual they have a great menu at the Pork Pavilion.
In addition to the food, the pork producers will have their birthing center on the fairgrounds where fairgoers can see baby pigs being born and see how pork producers take care of their animals.
