To Require BQA Certification
All Tyson Foods cattle suppliers,
including sale barns will need to be BQA
or equivalent certified
beginning January 1, 2019.
This is driven by retailer and end
consumers including the fast food business
and grocery business
and it has a trickle down effect.
As your livestock market we are already
burdened by paperwork
and this will add to the list of items that
we must keep on file.
However, if we don't have your certification on file Tyson Foods
cannot bid on your cattle at Manchester Livestock Auction
that matter at any other livestock auction.
Therefore we will
need a BQA certificate from you.
Please Note: Tyson
primarily purchases beef cattle;
however if you have Holsteins or
dairy cross cattle,
we would strongly recommend you become
as we believe sooner or later this could be required by
all cattle purchasers.
DO YOU BECOME CERTIFIED
Cattle producers can complete BQA training
at no cost online
at BQA.org and that process takes about two
or at no cost to you
2 training classes
will be held at Manchester Livestock Auction
(attendance at one
Wednesday July 25th,
Thursday July 26th,
9:00 AM to
approximately 11:00 AM
refreshments will be
starting @ 8:30 AM
BQA remains voluntary, however, without
you will limit who can bid on your cattle so
the choice is yours.
As we have progressed through
our 35 years here at MLA
this is just another of the items we've
seen in the ever changing livestock environment.
As your partner in livestock
marketing we look forward to serving your needs in the future.
