The Texas Beef Council (TBC) recently partnered with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension to host a specialized Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) program for cowboys. Different from the normal BQA training, the cowboy version is designed specifically to inform and educate cowboys and day-workers on BQA management practices. The training primarily focused on proper administration of injectable animal health products. More than 20 cowboys participated in the training held in Crockett.
The Texas Beef Council (TBC) conducts the $1 per head national checkoff program for Texas beef producers and is also the contractor for the Beef Promotion Research Council of Texas (BPRCT), which administers the $1 per head Texas state checkoff program. TBC’s mission is to increase beef demand in the state through programs of beef promotion, research and education. TBC also helps fund national and international beef checkoff programs to increase marketing opportunities around the globe. The BPRCT’s mission is to improve Texas producer profitability by strengthening and expanding beef demand. The TBC and the BPRCT are directed by a 20-member board of cattlemen and women representing the state’s beef producers.
