Register soon – Sunday afternoon lunch and Beef Quality Assurance meeting.

Make your reservation for Sunday December 9th for an afternoon of fellowship and education.  Dr. Stout, of Legends Lane Reproductive Services near Alexandria, is graciously offering use of the clubhouse at his embryo transfer and IVF facility.  The Licking County Cattleman’s are providing a meal thanks to our sponsors the Granville Milling Co. and Heartland Bank.  Following the meal, words from our sponsors, and a brief Licking County Cattlemen’s update, we will provide a Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) meeting which will provide certification to participants.

Tyson Foods, who harvest and process 25% of the US beef market share, and also Wendy’s, now the second largest fast food hamburger chain in the U.S., have both announced beginning in 2019 cattle they purchase must originate from producers and feed yards who are Beef Quality Assurance certified. This certification is not mandatory to sell cattle but this training will qualify you to have access to those markets.
