2019 Workshops, Events and Deadlines

Beef Quality Assurance Training

Food companies such as Tyson Foods and Wendy’s, announced last year their intent beginning in 2019 to only purchase cattle which originate from producers and feed yards who are Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) certified. Therefore, many stockyards and buyers are requiring this training for beef producers who sell to them.  

Ohio State University Extension, the Ohio Beef Council, the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association and Ohio’s cattle auction markets and collection points have been offering BQA trainings in Ohio across Ohio.  OSU Extension in Coshocton County is pleased to be offering another training session on Tuesday, September 3 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the Coshocton County Services Building (Room B100) located at 724 South 7th Street in Coshocton, Ohio. There is no fee for this program but pre-registrations are requested by calling the Coshocton County Extension office at 740-622-2265. 

Producers may take an in-person class or complete the training online at bqa.org.  Producers who participate in training (either on-line or in person) will receive a BQA Certification which is good for three years.  More information about the Beef Quality Assurance Program can be found at http://u.osu.edu/beefteam/bqa/
