BQA Partners on Training Program

The checkoff-funded Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) program, in partnership with the National Dairy FARM Program, announced the release of a stockmanship training video as part of the ongoing collaboration between both programs. The 27-minute video is divided into several chapters, including “Point of Balance,” “Understanding the Flight Zone” and “Utilizing Tools to Effectively Move Cattle.” Each segment contains reminder points and multiple-choice questions to test viewers on the content. The video can serve as a training resource to satisfy the FARM Animal Care Version 3.0 requirement for annual employee training. The video, directed by Dr. Robert Hagevoort of New Mexico State and the U.S. Dairy Education & Training Consortium is available on the FARM Program website and YouTube page in both English and Spanish.
