Beef Quality Assurance (BQA)

Beef Quality Assurance programs provide systematic information to U.S. beef producers and beef consumers of how common sense husbandry techniques can be couple with accepted scientific knowledge to raise cattle under optimum management and environmental conditions. BQA guidelines are designed to make certain all beef consumers can take pride in what they purchase – and can trust and have confidence in the entire beef industry. BQA program participants recognize that maintaining consumer confidence requires a commitment to quality beef production at every level – not just at the feedlot or packing plant, but within every segment of the cattle industry.
