    Join OSU Extension Medina County on March 12, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. for a Beef Quality Assurance Certification.  

    Many of America’s meat distributers will only buy beef that is from BQA Certified producers. This certification is not mandated by law. However, it is being required by some of the stakeholders that make up the beef supply chain, including auction barns, feed lots, packers, retailers, and consumers. Essentially, marketing beef without BQA certification will become increasingly difficult or will find prices are affected.
