The Iowa Pork Producers Association (IPPA) is partnering with the Iowa Pork Industry Center and Iowa State University Extension and Outreach to offer free Pork Quality Assurance Plus® (PQA Plus®) and Transport Quality Assurance® (TQA®) programs for Iowa pork producers.
PQA Plus and TQA are part of the industry aligned We Care responsible pork initiative, which establishes ethical principles for pork producers to produce safe food, protect and promote animal well-being, protect public health, safeguard natural resources, provide a safe work environment and contribute to a better quality of life in their communities.
Quality assurance training sessions will be hosted in July and August at five locations around the state. Each session will host TQA training beginning at 9:30 a.m. and concluding by 12 p.m. PQA Plus training will take place from 1 p.m. and conclude by 5 p.m.
