October 31, 2018
Having a plan for identifying cull animals is key for maintaining a safe and healthy cow herd. This publication explains how to identify animals that should be removed from the herd, when to cull them, and what to do with culled animals.
BQA = Beef Quality Assurance. Beef Quality Assurance is a nationally coordinated, state-implemented program that provides systematic information to U.S. beef producers and beef consumers on common sense husbandry techniques and how they can be coupled 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.
