The Oregon Cattleman’s Association is sponsoring a training in Corvallis for those interested in becoming Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) certified. Cory Parsons, the Oregon BQA Coordinator will be putting on the program at the Benton County Fairgrounds at 6:00pm on Thursday, February 9th, 2012.
Beef Quality Assurance is a national program that provides guidelines for beef cattle production. The program is largely dedicated to herd health, husbandry, and management. It covers many specific topics important to veterinarians such as injection site lesions and drug residue issues along with general husbandry practices aimed towards reducing the stress levels on the animals.
