Are You BQA Compliant?

Results of the 2011 National Beef Quality Audit released last week indicate that 78% of beef producers have attended a meeting at which best management practices (BMPs) or Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) principles were discussed. Of those who attended a BQA session, 99% said they followed BMPs consistent with BQA.

This week’s online poll question asks, “Are You BQA Compliant?”

My personal opinion is that the certified part is sort of rip off. It is in the industries best interest for everyone to do this and a program costing the producer extra money for a certified proof should not be needed. I have taken the tests many times and always pass them, why should I have to pay to prove it when there is no real teeth in anything connected to the payment except benefit for those receiving payment? Most of the content in the program was developed by those on government payrolls already thus the cost of material production should be minimal.
