Transport Quality Assurance (TQA)

TQA and PQA+ are certification programs that provide continuing education to pork producers.

TQA helps swine transporters, producers, and handlers understand how to handle, move and transport pigs and the potential impacts those actions have on pig well-being and pork quality.

U of M Extension, in conjunction with Minnesota Pork Board, holds these three-hour, in-person trainings throughout the year.

Check your certification status
