Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Training

A series of Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) training sessions will take place throughout Indiana to help producers either renew or earn a certification, good for three years.

The trainings are free. Only one person from each operation is required to be certified to ensure the entire operation follows BQA standards. However, everyone who handles and manages cattle are encouraged to become BQA certified.

Those unable to attend a session can also earn the certification online at

Producers only need to attend one meeting to become certified. Dates, local times, locations and contacts to RSVP for the upcoming 2023 trainings are listed in the attached flyer. 

A BQA Training will be held in Washington County on Thursday, November 2, 2023 from 6:30-9:00 pm at the Washington County Government Building (806 Martinsburg Rd.) in Salem, IN.  RSVP’s are appreciated, but not required to Purdue Extension-Washington County at 812-883-4601 or

BQA is a nationally coordinated, state-implemented program that provides information to beef producers and consumers on how common-sense husbandry techniques can be paired with scientific knowledge to raise cattle. Its programs include best practices around ensuring end-product safety and wholesomeness, protecting herd health and animal well-being, and good recordkeeping.
