Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc (BIVI) is partnering with the Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) program to provide more cattle producers and veterinarians access to their BQA certification modules.
These modules were created in partnership with Dr. Dan Thomson and a team at the Beef Cattle Institute at Kansas State University, according to a Boehringer news release. This team has developed online interactive modules to educate and certify producers and their staff on best practices for cattle production. There are specific modules customized for cow calf, stocker, feedlot and dairy operations.
BQA education aligns with BIVI’s focus on disease prevention, the Boehringer said. Following best production practices and preventing disease are the right things to do for the animal, for those that raise and produce cattle, and for the consumer of the end product, the company said.
