In today’s market, it is important to take advantage of any and all opportunities that make our cattle more desirable to the buyer sitting in the stands. As of now, Wendy’s restaurant, Tyson Foods and multiple auctions have announced that they will require producers to be certified in BQA in order to market their cattle or serve their product. To learn more and become certified, join us for this classroom style training.


BQA Certification will be followed by a live, interactive Ohio Beef School webinar. Topics covered will include: available forages, body condition, reproductive nutrition & calf health.
