Press Release by Boehringer Ingleheim
For the third time, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. (BIVI) is supporting the checkoff-funded Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) program by sponsoring all online certifications this fall for producers who enroll by Oct. 31.
Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. will pick up the $25-$50 certification fee for beef or dairy producers who are interested in becoming certified or recertified during this period. Visit http://www.BIVI-BQA.com to take advantage of the open certification period.
The BQA program is important to the cattle industry as it gives producers a set of best practices for producing a safe and high quality beef product. For dairy producers, this offering is beneficial as a large percentage of dairy calves and cull cows make their way into the food chain.
The BQA certification modules are customized to fit the specific needs of each segment of the cattle industry – cow-calf, stocker, feedyard and dairy operations.
The program covers best management practices such as proper handling and administration of vaccinations and other products, eliminating injection site blemishes, and better cattle-handling principles.
More than 11,000 producers have taken advantage of Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica Inc.'s BQA certification sponsorship. Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica Inc.'s sponsorship also includes financial support of the Beef Cattle Institute at Kansas State University, which developed the certification module.
