ARDMORE, Okla. — Noble Research Institute will host a Beef Quality Assurance Certification seminar from 1:30-5 p.m. Thursday, March 5, at the Noble Research Institute Kruse Auditorium.

Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) helps guide the daily ranch activities of cattle producers who embrace it.

Attendees will learn about:

  • The history of Beef Quality Assurance
  • The importance of carcass quality
  • Proper vaccination practices and protocols
  • The importance of a defined breeding program and genetics
  • Proper animal handling
  • The importance of record keeping
  • Basic cattle nutrition considerations

Attendees can earn BQA certification by completing this seminar and taking a short test at the conclusion. The certification allows the industry to document to consumers that cattle producers are engaged and properly promoting a safe, nutritious, wholesome product.

There is no registration fee, but preregistration is required. For more information and to register, please visit www.noble.org/events.
