BQA Certification Required
To Require BQA
All Tyson Foods cattle suppliers,
including sale barns will need to be BQA
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
cannot bid on your cattle at Manchester Livestock
or for 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 qualified
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 hours
or at no cost to you
classes will be held at Manchester Livestock Auction
(attendance at one not both
9:00 AM to
approximately 11:00 AM
will be provided
starting @ 8:30 AM
BQA remains voluntary, however,
without your certification,
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
