Boehringer Ingelheim Sponsors BQA Certification for Second Year

Boehringer Ingelheim Sponsors BQA Certification for Second Year
For the second year in a row, Boehringer Ingelheim Vet Medical is sponsoring the opportunity for individuals to get certified in Beef Quality Assurance. Dave Korbelik spoke with Radio Oklahoma Network’s Ron has at the recently-completed Cattle Industry Convention. Korbelik says his company is pleased to once again help producers pay for their Beef Quality Assurance certification.

“We’re proud to be the sole animal health partner with BQA on their national efforts. BQA has such a strong history, almost three decades of commitment at the grassroots level and state organizations. But, it has evolved and now there’s technology. There’s an opportunity to go online and have customized modules. A rancher can go online and have a customized module designed for ranchers or a customized model designed for feedlots or dairies or stocker operators.

Korbelik says that allows producers to go online anywhere they are at their convenience and gain their BQA certification. Normally the cost is $25 for the online modules, but Korbelik says Boehringer Ingelhiem is picking up the cost of that training through April 15th and producers will pay nothing.

“There’s no limit,” Korbelik says. “We could have 100,000 people if they wanted to go through that up until April 15th.”

Korbelik says Berringer Ingelheim has sponsored BQA for a long time and last year tested its support for the online learning tool.   The offered the online certification training for a 30-day period and approximately 3,500 people took advantage of it. He says his goal this year is 10,000 participants.
