Beef Quality Assurance Training

July 30, 2019


Beef producers are invited to attend a classroom session and chute-side workshop on Tuesday, July 30th, 2019 at 6 p.m. at the Nelson Farm, 490 Mill Rd., Cooperstown. Ashley McFarland, CNYDLFC Livestock Specialist, and Lynn Geoffery, DVM, will discuss vaccinations and health management in beef cattle. The chute-side workshop will offer demonstration and practice of proper sub-cutaneous injections. Participants will become eligible for "BQA" certification.

The cost is $10 per farm, which includes BQA materials. Pre-registration is required by July 29. Register online and pay by credit card at above link or by mailing your check with the registration form in the attached pdf.

The national Beef Quality Assurance Program plays an important role in educating producers on best management practices and assuring consumer trust in high quality and safe beef that is produced in the United States. This BQA meeting is sponsored by the Central New York Beef Producers in conjunction with the New York Beef Producers Association.

An additional goal is bringing its members into compliance to build confidence in buyers who are looking for high quality and well-managed calves at the fall and Calf Pool Sales. As beef production continues to evolve in Central NY, Cornell Cooperative Extension is working to assist regional beef producers to improve profitability and optimize their cattle growth. The Central NY Beef producers will be conducting a tele-auction on December 6th, 2019. Additional calves that meet the quality, weaning, management, and health protocols are still being sought. Contact regional livestock specialist Ashley McFarland for more information at am2876@cornell.edu or call (315) 604-2156.

Note: When registering online, your transaction may take up to 60 seconds to complete. To help avoid duplicate payments, please wait and do not click the "Register for Event" button more than once.
