BQA is a nationally coordinated, state implemented program that raises consumer confidence through assuring proper management techniques and a commitment to quality within every segment of the beef industry.
BQA certification is increasingly being encouraged, and in some cases required, by market outlets for finishing cattle and this expected to increase. BQA is a voluntary program and the Iowa BQA Program is funded by the IBIC and the Beef Checkoff. 
Other sessions are scheduled in the state as well, check the IBIC website at for Iowa BQA Program and other upcoming certification trainings in your area. BQA certification is also offered online at the national level, which can be accessed at
