Beef Quality Audit Shows Gains
UNITED STATES: 2005 Beef Quality Audit released, showing progress and setting a benchmark for quality goals and targets by the year 2015.
Final results from the 2005 Beef Quality Audit have been released. The research was partially funded by the beef checkoff and establishes a new benchmark for quality goals and targets by the year 2015.
Based on the audit, the checkoff-funded BQA program will target five specific education efforts to improve quality: the effects of animal health product use; quality assurance in care, handling and transportation; marketing opportunities; herd management actions that affect quality; and record-keeping practices.
