Checkoff calls for Beef Quality Assurance Award nominees

 Resize text         Printer-friendly version of this article Printer-friendly version of this article

Applications for the fourth annual checkoff-funded National Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Award are now being accepted. The National BQA Award will recognize one outstanding beef and dairy producer that best demonstrate animal care and handling principles as part of the day-to-day activities on their respective operations. A common trait among all contest entrants must be a strong desire to continually improve BQA on their operations while encouraging others to implement the producer education program.

The national BQA program promotes beef quality assurance in all segments of the industry, including commercial cow-calf, seedstock, stocker operators, feedlots and dairy operations.

Two National BQA award winners will be selected by a committee of representatives from universities, state beef councils and affiliated groups. Nominations can be submitted by any organization, group, or individual on behalf of a U.S. beef producer. Individuals and families may not nominate themselves, however the nominees are expected to be involved in the preparation of the application. For further information on the award or to download the application, please visit http://www.bqa.org.

There is a possibility that a third award may be funded so please be on the lookout for more information about a potential third category.

Please submit your applications (7 pages or less) in PDF format. Applications are due to Lauren Dever via email (ldever@beef.org) by July 15.
