This past week, we had Beef Cattle Boot Camp on the South Farm at MSU. We worked busily all week to prepare for this event. Producers around the state came to learn more about fencing techniques, live animal selection, reproductive evaluation, and then, they became BQA certified. We prepared rotational tables for the participants to learn more about injectables, identification methods, branding, dehorning, and other beef cattle management practices that comprise the BQA certification process. Becoming BQA (Beef Quality Assurance) Certified tells your buyers and eventually, consumers, that you raised your beef properly, humanely, and therefore, it is fit to eat. Anyone can become BQA certified, I am myself! Right now you can be BQA certified for FREE. Just visit the MSUcares website to learn more!
