Beef quality certification workshop at cattle U

Beef quality certification workshop at cattle U

By Scout Nelson

An exciting opportunity for Kansas ranchers to either become certified in Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) or renew their certification is on the horizon. This certification session is scheduled for June 25 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Manhattan, Kansas.

The event, co-hosted by Certified Angus Beef® (CAB) and Sysco, is aligned with the Cattle U conference, making it a significant gathering for those involved in the cattle industry.

The day will start with two BQA sessions. The morning session at 8:30 a.m. will be led by A.J. Tarpoff, a Kansas State University extension beef veterinarian, who will cover vital aspects of beef quality and cattle care.

The noon session will feature Kirsten Nickles of CAB discussing the brand’s initiatives to boost consumer demand for quality beef. Following Nickles, Mark Gardiner of Gardiner Angus Ranch will moderate a panel discussion with fellow Kansas producers, offering insights into practical and strategic aspects of cattle ranching.

Post sessions, attendees can take the BQA certification exam. Successful certification not only enhances a rancher's credibility and marketability but also ensures adherence to quality standards in beef production.

Participants in the workshop will be entered into a draw to win registration to the Feeding Quality Forum in August, complete with a hotel stay in Dodge City. Other giveaways include a YETI cooler filled with high-quality CAB steaks.

Cattle U will also feature a robust lineup of speakers, breakout sessions, and panel discussions that address current trends and challenges in the cattle industry. This makes the event a comprehensive platform for learning, networking, and growth for ranchers and beef producers.

To register for the event and view the full agenda, prospective participants are encouraged to visit the official Cattle U website. This workshop promises to be an enriching experience for all attendees, aiming to elevate the standards and practices of the beef industry in Kansas and beyond.
