Noble Research Institute Kruse Auditorium


1:30 pm - 5 pm

Registration Fee

There is no fee for this event.

Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) helps guide the daily ranch activities of cattle producers who embrace it. The nationally coordinated, state-implemented program is designed to educate producers on the importance of best management practices, such as vaccination and medicine handling and records, as well as proper nutrition for each stage of production. Other topics to be discussed include the importance of a defined breeding program, biosecurity on the ranch, proper animal handling and carcass quality. Attendees can earn BQA certification by completing this program and a short test. The certification allows the industry to document to consumers that cattle producers are engaged and properly producing a safe, nutritious, wholesome product.
