I was wondering if anyone else was BQA certified and do you think it was worth the trouble? There is a 5 hour class coming up in December on the other side of the state. It looks like it may be alot of BS? So I was looking for imput before I sign my name and pay my dues. We will have a new SD certified packing plant opening soon 2 hrs. away, and to SD certified you also need to be BQA certified to market your calves as SD certified, or to finish and sell to the plant as SD premium certified. I am not doing the organtic premium BQA, just the plain premium BQA certification.
