To help celebrate Pork Month, the public is encouraged to take part in the Wisconsin Pork Association Cele-BRAT October Pork Month. All are invited to participate in a brat tour of Wisconsin, which includes Lodi Sausage Co. & Meat Market.

Meat processors throughout the state will be distributing punch cards to win a tailgating package and chance to win a half of a hog. You can ask about receiving a punch card from any of the listed meat shops below. This is a chance to take a drive through Wisconsin to see the fall colors and support local farmers and their businesses.

To participate, follow these three easy steps:

— Visit one of the participating locations and pick up a punch card;

— Get your punch card stamped after purchasing Wisconsin Brats at a minimum of three different locations; and

— After getting all 5 brats stamped, mail you card to the Wisconsin Pork Association by Nov. 15

The half of a hog is the top prize, while other prizes include a $100, and $50 gift card to the place of your choice.
