Beef Quality Assurance is a nationally coordinated and state implemented program that is funded through the beef checkoff. BQA provides guidelines for beef cattle production and raises consumer confidence through offering proper management techniques and a commitment to quality within every segment of the beef industry.
The efforts of BQA across the nation have been instrumental in recent successes that continue to re-build and sustain beef demand. Through BQA programs, farmers and ranchers recognize the economic value of committing to quality beef production at every level - not just at the feedlot or packing plant, but within every segment of the cattle industry.
