The meeting will begin with a Beef Qualtiy Assurance (BQA) certification event. Jill Scofield from the Cailfornia Beef Council will talk about the latest BQA methods and Dr. Charlie Tobias, DVM will give a 1 hour hands-on demonstration showing the right and wrong places to give injections.
Lunch will follow the BQA certification event. During lunch we will hear talks from the California Cattlemen's Association.
Hope to see you there!
If you are new to the BQA program, here's some information about it:
BQA provides systematic information to 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.
Through BQA programs, producers recognize the economic value of committing to quality beef production at every level - not just at the feedlot or packing plant, but within every segment of the cattle industry.
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.
