Through Dairy BQA certification, producers recognize that every time they cull an animal from the dairy herd, they make a commitment to food safety and quality. When better quality cows leave the farm, the market place, packers and consumers all benefit while increasing dairy profitability. $10 DBQA manual fee; $5 lunch/person.
