North Carolina Beef Quality Assurance

— Written By

In the mid-1990s, BQA in North Carolina was introduced as the North Carolina Certified Beef Production program. The program, now entitled North Carolina – Beef Quality Assurance (NC-BQA), is a cooperative effort between beef producers, veterinarians, nutritionists, extension staff, and other professionals from North Carolina State University, the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, the North Carolina Cattlemen’s Association, and the North Carolina Cattlemen’s Beef Council.

By participating in the North Carolina Beef Quality Assurance (NC-BQA) program and adopting BQA production practices, you are positioning your business to take advantage of opportunities that lie ahead. Making a commitment to BQA isn’t just the right thing to do for the consumer, it can also open doors to new marketing opportunities for participating producers.
