Beef quality workshop offers ranchers certification training
The Noble Research Institute will host a Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Workshop from 1:30-4:30 p.m., Tuesday, June 27, at the Noble Research Institute Kruse Auditorium.
Beef Quality Assurance is a national program that aims to raise consumer confidence through offering proper management education and guidelines for the beef industry. This workshop will offer insight into BQA standards for animal care, record-keeping, nutrition and carcass quality.
"Understanding the value and fundamentals of BQA enables producers to help the industry in its effort to maximize consumer confidence and acceptance of beef and beef products," said Robert Wells, Ph.D., livestock consultant. "As an industry, it is vital that we continue to produce the world's safest, highest quality beef for consumers, both nationally and internationally."
Participants will also learn the importance of proper injection techniques, product handling and storage, and livestock handling and transportation. Agricultural producers who successfully complete the course and a subsequent test will become BQA certified.
This workshop is offered at no charge, but preregistration is required. For more information or to preregister, please visit www.noble.org/events or contact Danielle Pacifico at 580-224-6376 or Trisha DeLozier at 580-224-6377.
