BQA Training to be held at Empire Farm Days

New York Beef Council

RSVP due August 3rd for the training on August 7th from 4-7pm

The New York Beef Council is once again partnering with Cornell University Beef Extension Specialist Dr. Mike Baker to offer Beef Quality Assurance training at Empire Farm Days from 4:00pm to 7:00pm on Tuesday August 7th, at the showgrounds at Rodman Lott and Son Farms in Seneca Falls, NY.

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 animals 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 4:00pm-7:00pm training will include a FREE beef dinner sponsored the New York Beef Producers Association.

To register for the training, contact the Katherine at the New York Beef Council at 315.339.6922 or email [email protected]. Pre-Registration is required by August 3rd.
