There are still a few days left to take advantage of free Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) certification.

You have until Fri., March 15, 2013, to become BQA certified for free thanks to a partnership between the BQA program, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. and the Beef Cattle Institute (BCI) housed at Kansas State University.

The cost of BQA certification is normally $25-$50. However, between Feb. 11, 2013 and March 15, 2013, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. will defray the cost of the certification, making it free for producers.

Those interested in taking advantage of this BQA certification opportunity should start here.
