Beef quality assurance training
There will be a Texas Beef Quality Assurance Program Training held April 10 at 44 Farms in Cameron. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the program will begin at 9. Training will last until approximately 2 p.m. and will include lunch.
This program was developed to assist cattle producers in producing a safer, more wholesome food product. Following the session there will be an optional tour of the 44 Farms operation. The training session is built upon proven Best Management Practices.
The half-day program allows producers to become BQA trained, and participants will hear from Beef Cattle Specialists from across the state. Topics such as industry updates, record keeping, environmental stewardship, proper management practices regarding genetic selection, cattle handling, culling, vaccination, drug use and more will be discussed and will provide those present with a strong understanding of how these factors function together to ensure that we are producing a wholesome product.
For registration or more information, please call the Milam County Extension office at 254-697-7045. You can also pre-register online by emailing Stacy Fox with TSCRA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
