Beef Quality Assurance training will once again be held at Empire Farms Days on Tuesday, August 6 from 4 – 7 pm in the Beef tent on the grounds of Rodman Lott and Son Farms, Rte. 414, Seneca Falls. Cost for the training is $15/person or $25/farm and includes a BBQ beef dinner prepared by the New York Beef Producers Association.
The Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Program helps beef and dairy producers develop consumer-oriented production systems that combine technology, common sense, and animal well-being practices. The 3-hour educational program at Empire Farm Days will include classroom and chute-side training with live cattle on how to properly administer injections to assure animal health and beef quality.
To receive BQA certification, participants will need to demonstrate their ability to give a subcutaneous injection during the chute-side session of the training. The robust New York BQA program is a partnership with The New York Beef Council, Cornell Cooperative Extension and Cornell University that is supported by our sponsors Cargill, Landpro, Merck Animal Health, Powder River, Multimin, and Zoetis.
To register for the training, contact Nancy Glazier at 585-315-7746 or [email protected] by August 2.
Cornell Cooperative Extension Northwest New York Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Team serves dairy, livestock, and field crop farm businesses and supporting industries in ten northwest New York counties.
