BQA Workshop

Beef Quality Assurance Workshop at Hy-Plains Feedyard

August 21, 2024 from 1:30 to 7:00 pm

Join us Wednesday afternoon for a BQA workshop led by Dr. Bob Smith and Dr. A.J. Tarpoff and special guest, Coach Tang from Kansas State University. This free workshop is for feedyard employees and cow-calf producers. The sessions will offer live Spanish translation.

Anyone can attend the BQA workshop for free, meaning you do not have to register for the full Feeding Quality Forum program to get BQA’d. This feedyard-focused BQA training is designed for feedyard managers and their employees for continued education. Registration is requested so we know how many attendees to expect for refreshments.
