Why You Should be BQA Certified

Monday, January 14

Beef packers are beginning to require all producers from whom they purchase livestock be BQA (Beef Quality Assurance) certified. BQA is a national program that raises consumer confidence through offering proper management techniques and a commitment to quality within every segment of the beef industry.

The certification can be completed easily online at free of charge by simply watching a short video, answering pertinent questions and printing your certificate. Some packers have set their requirement date for January 1, 2019. It is expected eventually all packers will require this certification to accept livestock at their plants in the near future. The certification can be submitted to the marketing firm you use at any point prior to shipping livestock and will be retained in their file.
