Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) is a national program that raises consumer confidence through offering proper management techniques and a commitment to quality within every segment of the beef industry. 4T Ranch is proud to say we are BQA certified.
Quality means producing and providing a beef product that is wholesome and safe, but it also means providing a product that is going to deliver a desirable eating experience. Quality beef consistently satisfies customer expectations for eating, and preparation characteristics such as: tenderness, flavor, juiciness, color, packaging, price, and ease of preparation.
When it comes to productivity, in the U.S., we produce the same amount of beef today with 33% fewer cattle compared to 1977, and 18% of the world’s beef with only 6% of the world’s cattle. This is a result of better animal health and welfare, better animal nutrition and better animal genetics, all of which are supported by the Beef Quality Assurance Program.
The beef community has a long-standing commitment to caring for their animals and providing families with the safest, highest-quality beef possible. Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) is a program that trains farmers and ranchers on best practice cattle management techniques to ensure their animals and the environment are cared for within a standard set of guidelines and regulations across the U.S. beef industry.
