marks BQA Month in New York and throughout the month various trainings were
held at farms in each corner of the state! The Beef Quality Assurance program
provides review of important principles that affect the quality of beef
including animal care and husbandry, safe feedstuffs, feed additives and
medications, accurate processing and treatment records, and proper injectable
health product use.
York Beef Council and Cornell University partner to deliver BQA in the state.
Through strong partnerships with Morrisville State College and SUNY Cobleskill
over fifty dairy students received their Level I BQA Student Certification this
fall. “About 18% of our beef supply comes from dairy animals, it is important
that these students understand the significant role they play in producing and
ensuring the production of high quality beef,” shared Katherine Brosnan, New
York Beef Council Director of Industry Relations & Consumer Promotions and
addition to the college level trainings held over seventy five beef producers
and farm workers attended trainings during October BQA month. There are over
95,000 BQA certified producers throughout the United State who all opted to
become involved in the program in order to ensure beef quality and maintain
consumer trust. For more information about the Beef Quality Assurance program
