The Iowa Beef Industry Council is reminding beef and dairy producers that they have another ten days to take advantage of a free Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) certification offer. Through March 15th, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. is defraying the cost of the on-line BQA certification.
Doug Bear is with the Iowa Beef Industry Council. “BI is sponsoring for every producer across the nation to become BQA certified,” Bear says. “This free on-line certification would be normally 25 to 50 dollars.”
Bear says the on-line BQA certification feature easy-to-use modules that teach sound management techniques.
“The cattle industry has embraced BQA because it’s the right thing to do—and the certification is the next step to show our commitment to producing the best beef possible,” Bear says.
