The Iowa Pork Industry Center and Iowa State University Extension and Outreach are teaming up to provide training for pork producers and others who need certification in the Pork Quality Assurance Plus© (PQA Plus©) program. One certification session has been set for November 8th in Washington County.
Washington County administrative assistant Nancy Adrian said the session will be held at the Washington County Extension office, 2223 250th St. Washington, and will be taught by ISU Extension and Outreach swine program specialist Tom Miller.
“The PQA Plus© session is set for 7 to 9 p.m.,” she said. “Anyone who plans to attend should let us know as soon as possible to ensure that we have adequate materials for everyone.”
