Extension is expanding its online education and resources to adapt to COVID-19 restrictions.

Pork Quality Assurance Plus (PQA+)

Swine producers studying.

PQA+ provides improved animal well-being standards and relevant food safety standards to ensure producers can measure, track and continuously improve pig well being. 

U of M Extension, in conjunction with Minnesota Pork Board, holds three-hour, in-person training throughout the year. And we now have added an online option.

Find out how to register to take the course online.

Check your certification status

PQA Plus certification is good for three years, so producers need to be re-certified every three years to keep their certification current. To check your PQA+ or TQA status, call the Pork Checkoff Service Center at 1-800-456-7675.
