Program Information

The VQA program is a collection of science-based best management practices and resources developed by farmers, veterinarians and other industry experts to ensure that veal calves receive quality care through every stage of life and are raised using production standards that result in a safe, wholesome, high quality product that meets regulatory and customer expectations. Specifically, VQA is designed to address all aspects of animal care and on-farm practices.


The VQA program was originally created in 1990 and updated in 1995, 2004 and again in 2014. This current edition was reviewed and updated by a Technical Advisory Group in 2017.

The VQA program and resource materials are intended for educational purposes only. It is not a legal document. Veal farmers are individually responsible for determining and complying with all requirements of local, state and federal laws and regulations regarding all aspects of animal care and production practices.

Documentation to complete and submit for certification is contained within the VQA Manual available on the VQA Certification Resources page.

Re-certification is required every three years.
