Cattle handling seminar featuring Dr. Kip Lukasiewicz to be held June 17 in Lanesboro


Mon, Jun 15th, 2015
Posted in Lanesboro Agriculture

The Minnesota Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Program and the Iowa BQA Program will host Dr. Kip Lukasiewicz at cattle handling seminars during June 16-18, 2015. These seminars on effective stockmanship and handling techniques provide cattlemen with the tools to produce safe, healthy, and wholesome beef. The BQA Program is the industry’s gold standard of livestock handling and animal welfare programs to demonstrate the commitment to continually improve sound production practices to build domestic and global beef demand.

“Implementing low-stress cattle handling techniques is not only beneficial for animal welfare, but also increases the quality of beef we produce on our family farms and reduces the human safety risk when working with livestock,” said Doug Bear, Director of Industry Relations at the Iowa Beef Industry Council.

A cattle handling seminar will be held locally on June 17 from 5 p.m. - 8 p.m. at Lanesboro Sales Commission Inc., 402 Coffee St. E, Lanesboro, Minn. 55949

The session will include cattle handling basics and handling demonstrations presented by Dr. Kip Lukasiewicz, a chute side demonstration by Zoetis, and BQA Certification hosted by Iowa and Minn. BQA Coordinators. Sponsors of these cattle handling seminars include the Iowa Beef Industry Council (the Beef Checkoff Program), Zoetis, Purina, Quality Liquid Feed, Five Star Co-op, and Silver Edge Cooperative.

Beef producers and industry representatives may attend this session. There is no fee to attend, but pre-registration is encouraged. To pre-register, contact Doug Bear, Iowa’s BQA Coordinator at (515) 296-2305 or doug@iabeef.org. Additional information about the Iowa BQA Program and other upcoming BQA events may be found at http://www.iabeef.org/beefqualityassurance.aspx.
