K-State veterinarian to outline quality beef practices in virtual meeting

The Frontier Extension District will hold a virtual meeting “Beef Quality Assurance Practices,” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 10, 2021.

Beef Quality Assurance is a producer driven program in which cattle producers, from the cow-calf producer to the feedlot sector, assume responsibility for producing beef that is a healthy, wholesome, quality product and free from defects such as injection-site lesions and bruises. BQA guidelines are designed to make certain all beef consumers can take pride in what they purchase – and can trust and have confidence in what they eat.

A.J. Tarpoff, KSU Extension beef veterinarian, will be the featured speaker, discussing BQA practices, vaccine care, processing, treatment records, injection site location, and livestock handling using low stress methods. Time will be available at the end of his 45-minute presentation for questions and answers. This meeting will not certify producers in beef quality assurance.

To register for the Zoom presentation, call the Frontier Extension office in Ottawa at 785-229-3520 or email [email protected]

The meeting will be recorded for later viewing on the district’s website at: www.frontierdistrict.k-state.edu and will also be available for viewing on Facebook Live.
