Some large packers and processors have announced that effective January 1, 2019, buyers representing them will only purchase from farms that are BQA or FARM Certified. This will be in effect for all markets and all private treaty transactions. Buyers will confirm your certification by collecting your certification identification number at the point of sale. Additional processors may begin to require BQA or FARM Certification from their suppliers.

Beef producers created the voluntary Beef Quality Assurance Program in 1987 to assist each other in raising, feeding and harvesting high quality beef. By participating in BQA and adopting BQA production practices, you are helping to answer the call from the packers’ consumers, for safe beef raised in a humane manner.
