Beef Quality Assurance Training A Success

Dr. Mike Baker, State Beef Specialist with Cornell University, provided training on Beef Quality Assurance, a program sponsored by the New York Beef Council to train beef producers on management practices that impact beef food safety and consumer confidence in beef. Mike and the accompanying vets led the group on a drug label reading exercize where each participant was given a drug bottle or box to read and answer questions regarding the label. Finally, a chute-side training allowed each participant to demonstrate a successful sub-cutaneous injection. Ron Cieri and Jim Ingram also explained their cattle handling system. Participants are now eligible to complete a form and gain level one certification in Beef Quality Assurance.
