The processing companies are requiring all our customers be Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) certified. Each customer who sells market cattle through Haas Livestock Selling Agency, Inc must have a current BQA certificate on file in our office.
The certification can be completed easily online at www.bqa.org free of charge by simply watching a short video, answering pertinent questions and printing your certificate. On Tuesday November 13th, following our Feeder Special Sale, we will host a live presentation at our livestock arena for those who wish to complete the certification in person.
Tyson has set their requirement date for Jan 1, 2019 for certification. Other companies are following suit and it is our understanding that all will eventually require this to accept livestock at their processing plants.
If you have questions that aren’t answered online, call the MN Beef Council 763-479-1011.
