Improve the Value of your Beef through Quality Assurance

Improve the Value of your Beef through Quality Assurance

The Pennsylvania Beef Council will conduct a Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Classroom Level 1 training session Tuesday, March 5, 2013. The training will be held at the Potter County Extension Office located at 24 Maple View Lane Coudersport, PA 16915. The Classroom training class will run from 6 -8pm. The training will be for producers new to the BQA program that are interested in becoming certified. Light refreshments will be served.

The BQA program is designed to improve the value and quality of beef throughout the industry by training producers in the best management practices. The classroom training session is the first level of a two-part program. The classroom training session will help train beef producers in best management practices as a way to help them improve their beef’s value. The second part of the training is a chute-side training session. Producers will see the effects and outcomes of shots given in the meat and/or muscle depending on the route of administration and type of product given.

Recertification is required every two years. Producers who complete the two-level program will receive a certification manual which includes helpful reference material and record-keeping forms. Certified producers will also receive a Free Certified Producer farm sign, opportunity to purchase BQA Allflex ear tags, Free PA Preferred/BQA Beef stickers to label beef you sell, access to calf pool sales, access to sell beef to BQA retail programs, Free BVD PI Test Kits, a monthly newsletter, and much more.

For questions or to register for the event, please contact Nichole Hockenberry at the Pennsylvania Beef Council, 1-888-423-3372 or nhockenberry@pabeef.org .

It's all free? Yep, one more program I would cut from the budget. NOTHING is free.

To poster12:29. Have you ever been to one of these meetings? If not keep your comments to yourself about the meeting. These are a very informative meetings especially for the beef producers. There are many producers that would not like to see this cut from the budget. I am a BQA producer and think it is a very worth while program.

Um, yeah bud, I am a small scale beef producer too. 20 CAB cow/calf operation. I just don't see the need for the govt to fund these types of programs when we are swimming in debt. It should be funded by those that will benefit, exactly like the beef promotion program. Stop looking for more hand outs.
