Iowa Beef Industry Council hosts BQA meeting


Iowa State University Department of Animal Science and the Beef Checkoff Program helped sponsor a Beef Quality Assurance program on Oct. 4 and 25 at the Iowa Beef Industry Headquarters in Ames, Iowa. More than 100 students attended and became BQA certified during the two-day program.

The Beef Quality Assurance training was conducted by Doug Bear, director of Industry Relations for the Iowa Beef Industry Council for Brad Skaar's beef production class. The training included discussion on industry information, proper routes of administration for vaccines as well as the importance of reading the product label and following proper withdrawal times. The training instructed participants on best management practices within the beef and dairy industry that ensure a safe, nutritious, and high quality product for consumers.

"An integral part of a successful Beef Quality Assurance program in Iowa is working directly with our future industry leaders. During this two-day event we discussed current and upcoming industry information, proper management and low-stress handling of cattle, vaccination protocols, and importance of having positive conversations with our consumers," stated ISU Associate Professor Brad Skaar, Ph.D. "This is a great opportunity to empower to the next generation of leaders with Beef Quality Assurance and industry information."

Maintaining consumer demand for beef requires a daily commitment to the production practices within every segment of the industry that influences the safety, wholesomeness, and quality of beef and beef products with the use of science, research, and education initiatives. For additional information on BQA events, please contact the Iowa Beef Industry Council at 515-296-2305 or doug@iabeef.org.

Producer-directed and consumer-focused, the Iowa Beef Industry Council is funded by the $1-per-head beef checkoff. Checkoff dollars are invested in beef promotion, consumer information, research, industry information and foreign market development, all with the purpose of strengthening beef demand.
