Important Notice
BQA Certification Required

Beef Processor 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
or for that matter at any other livestock auction.
Therefore we will need a signed affidavit from you stating you are BQA certified.

 HOW 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, we are in the process of planning one, perhaps two,
livestock producer open houses through our trade organization
Livestock Marketing Association to conduct certification.
We are hoping to do this prior to harvest.

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.

 When the certification dates are set,
we will have the information on our web page.

 As your partner in livestock marketing
we look forward to serving your needs in the future.

It's a common misconception that livestock markets are in the business of competing with each other ..... on the contrary ...... livestock markets are in the business of providing competitive markets for small, medium and larger producers.  The information placed on this page and our web site is available so you can see what's happening locally.  Markets fluctuate and so does the quality of livestock so you'll need to make your own judgment in that regard.

We're proud to be in the livestock auction marketing business and we're just as proud to work for and with the best people in the world.

The price reports on this page (and others) are placed here using something like Microsoft Excel .... and I believe you can "copy and paste" into your Excel program for your own use.
