End users of beef products, including Tyson Foods and Wendy's are now starting to require producers of that beef to have Beef Quality Assurance Training. OSU Extension, the Ohio Beef Council, the Ohio Cattlemen's
Association and Ohio's cattle markets and collection points are working together to offer BQA trainings in Ohio. Certification lasts for three years. Producers may take and in-person class or complete the training online at bqa.org.
