As part of the Texas Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) efforts and with the help of beef checkoff funds, Beef 706 focuses on impacting beef producers’ management decisions by exemplifying the results of the National Beef Quality Audit (NBQA).
All beef quality efforts, including Beef 706, are based on the current NBQA. This audit, funded in part by checkoff dollars, takes place every five years and serves as a benchmark for the cattle industry.
Beef 706 is a one-and-a-half-day educational hands-on experience. Beef producers learn about safety and quality issues affecting their product. Beef producers also interact with professors and extension specialists in meat science and beef cattle production. This program encourages interactive dialogue, a valuable educational tool.
If you are a Texas beef producer interested in learning more about your product, this program is for you.
