Ranchers, feeders and dairymen can earn free Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) certification through April 15. The offer is available as the result of a partnership between Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica (BI) and the checkoff-funded BQA program. Certification can be accomplished here.

Online modules are customized to meet the needs of producers in different industry segments, including cow-calf, stocker, feedyard and dairy. Beyond reinforcing best practices for cattle production, cattle producers becoming BQA-certified helps reassure consumers they are buying a safe, wholesome product.

This is the third year BI has sponsored this promotion. The partnership has led to more than 16,000 producers earning BQA certification.
