Veterinarians and others with pork production and education experience have the opportunity to become advisors for the National Pork Board’s Pork Quality Assurance Plus program. The certification process requires attending a day-long training session and passing an exam. The Iowa Pork Industry Center at Iowa State University in Ames will hold a training session on May 28.
James McKean, Iowa State Extension swine veterinarian, is coordinating the event, which will be held in the Ensminger Room in Kildee Hall on the Iowa State campus. The session will be taught by Iowa State animal science and veterinary medicine faculty members who are certified PQA Plus trainers.
