Outstanding producer to be recognized; apply by May 14

BEDFORD, Pa. -- The Pennsylvania Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) will recognize one outstanding dairy and beef producer from across the state, that incorporates BQA principles as part of the day-to-day activities on their farm. The award is open to all segments of the industry including commercial cow-calf, seedstock, stocker operators, feedlots and dairy operations. The winners will be selected based upon their commitment to BQA while operating sustainable cattle operations.

You are encouraged to take this opportunity to share your story and show your commitment to the BQA program and the beef community. Ultimately, the award recipients will assist the beef industry in presenting a positive story about cattlemen’s contributions to BQA. State award winners will be submitted to the National BQA Contest that is hosted by NCBA.

Applications are due no later than the close of business on May 14. For more information, please visit the PA BQA website at www.pa-bqa.org. To obtain an application, please contact Bridget Bingham, 1-888-423-3372 or bbingham@pabeef.org.
