(WFRV) – There are a number of important trainings and certifications happening in the months ahead. Now is the time to get them on your calendar.
BEEF QUALITY ASSURANCE IN WISCONSIN
BQA does more than just help beef producers capture more value from their cattle: BQA also reflects a positive public image and instills consumer confidence in the beef industry. When producers implement the best management practices of a BQA program, they assure the cattle they sell are the best they can be. Today, the stakes are even higher because of increased public attention on animal welfare. BQA is valuable to all beef and dairy producers because it:
- Demonstrates commitment to food safety and quality.
- Safeguards the public image of the beef and dairy industries.
- Upholds consumer confidence in valuable beef products.
- Improves sale value of marketed beef cattle.
- Enhances herd profitability through better management.
