What is happening in the Beef industry?

The beef consumer wants to know more these days.  They want to know that the beef is safe to eat  and the animal has been humanly treated and much more!

We have all heard of Beef Quality Assurance - BQA
and are coming to a time when we will need to have a BQA Certification to bring our animals to the market. 

Central Livestock said that as of Jan 1st, 2019 Tyson will only buy (or bid on) animals from BQA Certified farms.  Cargill plans to require it soon, and other packers, including JBS Packerland, will announce a date when they will require it during 2019 -2020.  At this moment, no cow packers are requiring it, but please anticipate that changing.

Below is a link to Central Livestock's information on QBA Requirements:  click here

Please watch for BQA Certification classes or consider completing it online.  www.BQA.org
