ORANGE CITY, Iowa — Beef producers and agri-business professionals wanting to obtain or renew their Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) certification have four opportunities to do so in June.
Trainings will be offered as follows:
June 1, 10 a.m.-Noon – Royal Community Center, Royal; RSVP to 712-262-2264 by May 26.
June 2, 10 a.m.-Noon – Frontier Bank Basement, Rock Rapids; RSVP to 712-472-2576 by May 28.
June 10, 10 a.m.-Noon – Sac County Fairgrounds 4-H Building, Sac City; RSVP to 712-662-7131 by June 8.
June 16, 5 p.m.-8 p.m. – Emmet County Fairgrounds, Estherville; RSVP to 712-362-3434 by June 11.
The BQA trainings are the cooperative effort of the Iowa Beef Center, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, the Iowa Beef Industry Council, and the Clay, Lyon, Sac and Emmet County Cattlemen’s Associations.
The objectives are three-fold: 1) to provide education on best production methods, 2) to assure consumers that beef is raised with attention to detail, and 3) to increase international demand for U.S. beef.
Because of COVID restrictions, please register for the site to be attended. Walk-ins will not be allowed, and facemasks are preferred.
