Cost for the training is $15 per person, $25 per farm (limit 3 per farm), which includes lunch. Registration is required by May 1 to guarantee lunch and materials. To register for the event, send a check payable to CCE and mail to Cathy Wallace, CCE – Genesee Co./NWNY Team, 420 E.

By attending, a beef producer will be level 1 certified. With a signed Veterinarian Client/Patient Relationship (VCPR) form, a producer is certified at level 2. He or she will have the opportunity to purchase a farm sign verifying the BQA certification. Certification is good for 3 years. The Beef Quality Assurance Program is supported by the Beef Checkoff and our sponsors.
