Producer Input Sought for 2016 National Beef Quality Audit

November 16, 2016

Beef producers from every segment of the industry – including dairy beef – are being encouraged to participate in a survey that will help establish a benchmark and course for the beef industry for 2017 and beyond. To access the survey, visit the Beef Quality Assurance website. The deadline is Nov. 18.

The Producer Survey of the checkoff-funded 2016 National Beef Quality Audit (NBQA) will collect information and opinions, which will help form an in-depth look at where the industry stands, as well as its successes and shortcomings.

The survey is completely anonymous and includes both information about the industry's cattle operations and the opinions of the people who run them about the strengths and weaknesses of the industry. First performed in 1991 and conducted every five years since then, the beef quality audit has provided the industry a meaningful set of guideposts and measurements about the U.S. beef supply.
