Beef Quality Assurance Training

Beef producers and agribusiness professionals have an opportunity to obtain their Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) certification in northwest Iowa, according to Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Beef Specialist Beth Doran.
 
The Iowa Beef Center, Iowa State Extension and the Iowa Beef Industry Council are cooperating to offer a training on November 21, from 10 am - 12 pm at the Woodbury County Extension office, 4728 Southern Hills Drive in Sioux City. The session will feature eight best management practices and new emerging trends in the beef industry.
 
“At least four packers now require beef producers to be BQA certified,” Doran said. “Our goal is to help them achieve certification to maintain their market access and to continue to produce safe, wholesome and high quality beef.”
 
There is no cost to attend this BQA certification training, but participants are encouraged to preregister by November 19 by calling the Woodbury County office at (712) 276-2157.
