Beef producers and ranchers interested in promoting good cattle raising and management practices in an effort to strengthen consumer confidence in beef as a wholesome food product attended a Texas Beef Quality Producer training in Fort Worth Thursday. Attendees heard from Dr. Jason Banta, Texas A&M University AgriLife Extension beef cattle specialist, about improving food safety with thorough record keeping, careful maintenance and animal health programs, and making the right decisions to help produce the healthiest product possible for consumers. Dr. Ron Gill, beef cattle specialist, also spoke about beef quality concerns in regard to animal health, nutrition, genetics and low-stress handling procedures.
The BQA program is free and available as 1-day workshops in person and online at texasbeefquality.com.
