Beef Quality Assurance Training

As most of you know, several packing plants will only purchase fed 
cattle from BQA certified feedlots beginning 1/1/19. It is clear that 
consumers feel confident in the Beef Quality Assurance program and have 
driven this change. While further education though BQA always helps the 
beef industry, we do not want some of our producers to be caught off 
guard with this change. Online certification is always an option, 
however, some producers still prefer and in-person meeting.

The Kansas Beef Council has planned and is offering a 2 night in-person 
training (and via online through zoom). This will give us the 
opportunity to reach multiple locations in a short amount of time to 
ensure producers that need BQA certification by the end of the year will 
have it. The current dates that the KBC and KLA have set up are:

November 5th: 7pm at the Meridian Center in Newton (In-Person), Zoom 
meeting at the same time in Emporia (Hosted by KLA staff)

November 7th: 7pm at the High School in Washington (In-Person), Zoom 
meeting at the same time offered in Oberlin (Hosted by KLA staff)

Details of these evenings are still in the works. As we receive more 
information, we will get it to you.
