BQA training is scheduled

     Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) training will be held Wednesday, Dec. 19, 7 to 9 p.m. at the New Vienna Hall in New Vienna.

     Producers selling fed beef will need or want to get certified soon. Two major beef packers will require BQA certification to purchase fed cattle in 2019, and two more have indicated they will require it in 2020.

     There is no cost to attend, and no pre-registration needed. For information contact Denise Schwab, Iowa State University beef program specialist, at 319-472-4739; or Rusty Gibbs, Iowa Beef Industry Council director of industry relations, at 515-296-2305.
