COVID-19 LESSON PLANS

Students will need to work on getting their Beef Quality Assurance Certifications.
  • BQA: Stocker/Backgrounder Certification
  • BQA: Feedyard Certification
The link to the certification website is https://www.bqa.org/bqa-certification/online-bqa-certification
As you complete the certificates, you will need to email me a copy of your certificate with your unique certificate number on it.
Also, if a student didn’t complete their BQA: Cow/Calf Certification, then this would be a good time to complete that assignment as well.

Corona Virus Plans until we return to School

While we are temporarily being quarantined, and I know all of you are not enjoying this extended break at all. So, I wanted to give you some small things that you could be working on to better yourselves during these trying times.

Beef Quality Assurance Certificates!

Below is the link to the slide show over the certification (which is also posted on Google Classroom (the 1st thing at the top of the page when you click the “Classwork” tab)), just in case you forgot how to login or which certifications you need to be working on.  You should be working on getting the BQA: Stocker AND the BQA: Feedyard certifications.
