SDSU Extension Livestock Stewardship Field Specialist & Beef Quality Assurance Coordinator

The primary role of certified South Dakota Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Trainers is to conduct in-person BQA certification courses. They can also assist producers with writing standard operating procedures (SOPs), employee training resources or providing example templates for required BQA records. South Dakota BQA trainers may assist producers with completing voluntary, on-farm assessments (BQA Feedyard Assessment, Stocker Assessment or Cow-Calf Assessment). Contact a certified South Dakota BQA Trainer in your area to learn more.
