Event description


University of Maryland Extension will be hosting two separate 1-Day Beef Quality Assurance Workshops either in Western Maryland or Southern Maryland. Producers are required to participate in a 1-Day workshop that illustrates the guidelines of BQA, followed by a hands-on chute-side training. At the completion of both components, producers are required to take an exam. Once a producer has completed both levels of training and have passed the exam they are certified. Certification is valid for three years. Take the opportunity today to make the BQA commitment a priority and standard on your farm!

Beef Quality Assurance is a nationally coordinated, state implemented program that provides systematic information to beef and dairy 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.
