Attention Brooks County Cattlemen,

The Wiregrass Cattlemen’s Association will be hosting their bi-monthly meeting here in Quitman at the Brooks County Ag Building. Wiregrass has asked Dr. Lee Jones from our UGA Veterinary College to come down and give a certification training on Beef Quality Assurance. The Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) is a national program that provides guidelines for beef cattle production. The program raises consumer confidence through offering proper management techniques and a commitment to quality within every segment of the beef industry.This meeting is for anyone who needs to recertify or to become certified for this program. Also, anyone needing to sign up for Premise ID numbers can do this at the meeting as well.

The meeting will start around 6:00 pm February 26th; supper will be provided.

Please contact Kurt Childers at 229-561-3466 or Kurtchilders@windstream.net if you have any question regarding the meeting.
