Beef Quality Assurance Training Free for Cattle Producers Through April 15

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 10:05:03 CDT

Beef Quality Assurance Training Free for Cattle Producers Through April 15 Only one week remains to become Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) certified and take advantage of the free offer from Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. (BIVI). Visit www.BQA.org/team to take advantage of the open certification period through April 15, 2014. Anyone who works with cattle - whether it is beef or dairy - or transports cattle is encouraged to become certified.

BIVI will pick up the $25-50 certification fee for beef or dairy producers who are interested in becoming certified or recertified during this period. And, as an added incentive, anyone who becomes certified this week will be entered to win a personalized farm sign.

“The BQA program raises consumer confidence through offering proper management techniques and a commitment to quality within every segment of the beef industry,” says Sugie Sartwelle, beef producer, livestock trucking company owner and former auction market operato from Sealy, Texas. “Producers have embraced BQA because it is the right thing to do; but they have also gained through increased profitability. As an educating program, BQA helps producers identify management processes that can be improved.”

And, as added incentive, BIVI is also giving away special prizes this week on Facebook. Check out the BIVI Prevention Works Facebook page by clicking here to participate in the special giveaways all week long.

The checkoff-funded BQA program is important to the cattle industry as it gives producers a set of best practices for producing a safe and high-quality beef product. It also gives consumers the assurance that the beef they eat is both safe and wholesome.

“Not only is BQA important for the cattle industry as a whole, it can benefit each cattle operation,” says Dave Korbelik, Director of US Cattle Marketing for BIVI. “We are honored to be able to support the cattle industry through this partnership. Please have each individual on your operation take advantage of this opportunity and have your friends and neighbors do the same!”

More than 3,500 producers took advantage of BIVI’s BQA certification sponsorship in 2013. To become BQA certified, or learn more about the program, visit the BQA Team website by clicking here..
