Transport Quality Assurance® (TQA®) is a program that helps pig transporters, producers and handlers understand how to handle, move and transport pigs as well as potential impacts on pig well-being and/or pork quality. Anyone who handles pigs, transports pigs, or sets protocols for handling pigs, can influence animal well-being and pork quality.
