Valier Homesteader Days & MRLA Gentle Hand Livestock Conference - June 20, 2015

Marias River Livestock Association is excited to host a couple of great speakers and the opportunity to become certified in Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) during Homesteader Days in Valier Montana, June 20, 2015. 

We are happy to be hosting Curt Pate again after having him in Shelby last summer for the Gentle Hand Livestock Conference with Temple Grandin. Bill Pelton will speak following Pate and this combination of speakers will allow those who sign in and out attending both talks to qualify for the BQA certification.

It is hard to find time to sit at the computer and run though the BQA course and some livestock producers just don't feel real confident or motivated to share that much time with the computer. This will offer a way to get Certified in an easy and fun afternoon.

Beef Quality Assurance is a nationwide program that provides guidelines for beef producers in livestock handling, vaccinations and other health topics. It address issues that affect beef quality. The American consumer expects high quality beef for their dollar and the BQA program helps to build consumer confidence through offering proper management techniques and a commitment to quality within every segment of the beef industry.

The program is not a government program and is totally voluntary. Producers have the option of becoming certified because good handling and health practices are good for both the producer and the cattle. You can also attend just for the information presented as it is open and free to the public.
