Are you selling beef / dairy animals to be harvested for meat and need to update your Beef Quality Assurance Certification?

The goal of the Ohio Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) program is to increase the competitive base for marketing Ohio cattle. BQA is a program to ensure that beef and dairy cattle are maintained in a manner which will result in a safe and wholesome beef product for the consumer. The Ohio BQA program is set to meet or exceed NCBA BQA Guidelines.

Attending this session will allow you to obtain the Ohio BQA certificate OR renew your existing certificate. Certificates are good for three years.
