Every year we become more advanced in technology, and it happens in the cattle world, too.

Consumers today want more transparency and information about where their beef comes from.

So now you ask yourself, “What can I do to help the consumers that fits into my cattle budget?”

For starters you can become BQA (Beef Quality Assurance) Certified, currently free of charge online and in person at select locations.

Visit www.BQA.org to learn more. There are a few different certifications you can get from cow-calf to transportation. All information is listed on their website. If you’re not sure, ask the nearest kid. I’m sure they have
a smart phone and would be happy to pull it up for you.
