BQA

 

Notice - New BQA Requirements

We have been notified by two of our largest buyers that effective January 1, 2019 for one and January 1, 2020 for the other, that they will only purchase cattle from suppliers who have been certified in a BQA (Beef Quality Assurance) or FARM program. This requirement is to be implemented in all markets  and all private treaty transactions.
 
The result of this requirement on our members is such that they must be certified in order to have buyers representing these two packers bid on their cattle. We will be required to announce seller certification to receive bids from these two entities.
 
BQA certification can be achieved by logging in on the BQA website at http://www.bqa.org and signing up for one of the free courses which best fit your particular operation. These courses are based on industry accepted practices that a vast majority of producers currently employ. Also below are dates of times you can go onsite and become certified as well.
 
Upon gaining certification, please provide your name and the name of any entity you sell under, as well as your address, phone number, certification number and expiration date to us at Bloomington Livestock Exchange, so we can make the proper announcement at the time of sale. Any questions please feel free to contact us at Bloomington Office (608) 994-2020, Belmont Sale Barn (608) 762-5303, or Kevin at (608) 732-0732 or you can email us at bloomingtonlivestock@hotmail.com . Thank you for your prompt attention.
