Beef Quality Assurance

A few months ago I saw an opportunity to become Beef Quality Assurance certified for free.  Boehringer Ingelheim was nice enough to pay for people to become certified.  As a crops girl, I thought I could stand to learn a little bit more about cattle.

Even though I grew up around cattle, I didn't catch the animal science bug....until I graduated from college.  After graduation, I had a four month window before getting married.  Instead of getting a job for that short time, I helped my dad on the farm.  From December to April, most of the work that goes on has to do with cattle.  Somehow it just clicked and now I am a closet cattle girl! (But don't tell anyone, I wouldn't want to ruin my agronomygirl reputation!)

So last month I signed up for the videos and tests to become BQA certified and I passed!  Now you can refer to me as agronomygirl, Beef Quality Assurance certified! ;)  Okay, maybe just Jessie.  I am excited for the extra knowledge I picked up taking this course in Cow/Calf Management!

Thanks to the ladies who posted about this on Facebook and Twitter to let me know!
