Beef Quality Workshop Offers Ranchers Certification Training
The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host a Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Workshop from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., Friday, March 14, at the Noble Foundation Kruse Auditorium.


Beef Quality Assurance is a national program that aims to raise consumer confidence through offering proper management education and guidelines for the beef industry. This workshop will offer insight into BQA standards for animal care, record keeping, nutrition and carcass quality.


Participants will also learn the importance of proper injection techniques, product handling and storage, and livestock handling and transportation. Agricultural producers who successfully complete the course and a subsequent test will become BQA-certified.


“Understanding the value and fundamentals of BQA enables producers to help the industry in its effort to maximize consumer confidence and acceptance of beef and beef products,” said Robert Wells, Ph.D., livestock consultant. “As an industry, it is vital that we continue to produce the world’s safest, highest quality beef for consumers, both nationally and internationally.”


This workshop is offered at no charge, but preregistration is required. For more information or to preregister, please visit www.noble.org/agevents or contact Jackie Kelley at 580.224.6360.
