The BQA in Indiana

Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Training and Certification Requirement

Beef Quality Assurance is a nationally coordinated, state implemented program that provides systematic information to U.S. beef producers and beef consumers of how common sense husbandry techniques can be coupled with accepted scientific knowledge to raise cattle under optimum management and environmental conditions. BQA guidelines are designed to make certain all beef consumers can take pride in what they purchase – and can trust and have confidence in the entire beef industry. You can find the link to the BQA website where you can get certified today for free by clicking here. 

Purdue University Extension in cooperation with the Indiana Board of Animal Health, Indiana Beef Council, Indiana Beef Cattle Association, and the beef cattle auction markets located across the state will host a series of 14 face-to-face training and certification programs to assist producers in becoming Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) certified. Light snacks, but no meals, are planned for most locations. You can find more information about these meetings and why you should attend by clicking here.

This new research study adds to the growing body of scientific evidence demonstrating lean beef can be part of healthy eating patterns to support heart health and increase flexibility for healthy eating.
