Youth Pork Quality Assurance (PQA) Plus

Youth PQA Plus

Youth PQA Plus was the youth pork quality assurance certification program provided by the National Pork Board. As of June 1, 2018, the Youth PQA Plus program was discontinued and all users are being transitioned to Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA). The National Pork Board will honor Youth PQA Plus certification numbers until they expire. After a young person's certification expires, they will need to become YQCA certified. Please visit their website for more information.
