Online BQA Certification
The Joint Producer Education Committee recently passed a resolution to allow all interested states to implement a nationally organized online BQA certification program. The national program will design and fund the program modules, while the certification data in the database will be the property of the state beef council or cattlemen’s association who will receive the reports. This soon-to-be-launched program will allow states limited by tight resources to fund certification programs. For states with current programs, it will allow them to reduce costs if necessary. For more information on the BQA program, funded in part by the beef checkoff, go to www.bqa.org.
