Delaware Valley University Students Complete Beef Quality Assurance Certification
On March 29, 2018, 11 Delaware Valley University students obtained their Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Certifications. The Pennsylvania Beef Council visited the University's campus to test and certify the students in BQA.
BQA is a national training program that implements national guidelines on raising, treating, and handling cattle to ensure a high quality, wholesome product for consumer confidence. It is a producer/industry level quality control program.
Students were instructed in the DelVal Beef Science course by Bob Brown, and then the Pennsylvania Beef Council came to campus for a day of testing. All of the students passed their BQA Certification and their Beef Quality Assurance Transport Certifications.
