Iowa Pork Industry Center adds PQA Plus 2.0 Advisor session
To meet continuing demand and the Aug. 31 deadline for advisor recertification under the newly revised Pork Quality Assurance Plus program, Iowa Pork Industry Center at Iowa State University has added a session on Aug. 29 in Ames.
This Aug. 29 session will be held in the Ensminger Room in Kildee Hall on the Iowa State campus, beginning with registration at noon and the session at 12:30 p.m. The half-day session ends with successful passing of an open-book test following the educational portion.
James McKean, IPIC associate director and Iowa State Extension swine veterinarian, and Tom Baas, animal science professor, coordinate the IPIC schedule and teach each session. There is a 15-person minimum and a 30-person maximum, with a deadline two weeks prior to the specific session date, or when filled. No walk-ins are allowed and individual spots are not guaranteed until specific payment is confirmed by IPIC. The recertification is $50 per person.
McKean said those who qualify and want to recertify at the Aug. 29 session should download, complete and submit the registration form and payment soon. The general PQA Plus Advisor certification session page with dates and registration links is on the IPIC website at http://www.ipic.iastate.edu/pqaplus2.html.
