U.S. BEEF PRODUCED UNDER STRINGENT ANIMAL CARE STANDARDS

BEEF QUALITY ASSURANCE (BQA) PROGRAM ENSURES SAFE HIGH-QUALITY MEAT

Executive Director of Producer Education for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, a contractor to the Beef Checkoff

For more than 30 years, the beef community has participated in a Beef Checkoff-funded, voluntary Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) program to ensure U.S. beef is produced under stringent animal care standards, resulting in safe, high-quality meat. The BQA program trains farmers and ranchers on best practices and cattle management techniques to ensure their animals and the environment are cared for within a standard set of guidelines across the U.S. beef industry. With more than 85% of the beef supply in the U.S. today coming from a BQA certified farmer or rancher, consumers should have the utmost confidence in the beef they purchase.
