Beef Quality Assurance and Low-Stress Handling Workshop

Join Dr. Colt W. Knight, UMaine Extension Livestock Specialist, and the owners of Findview Farm in Gorham, for an evening discussion of some key issues with Maine raised beef cattle.

This workshop will be held at Findview Farm, 147 Mighty Street, Gorham, Maine on October 15th from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.

Topics will include the differences between grass and grain-fed beef, low stress handling, and beef quality assurance. All participants will have the opportunity to become certified in Beef Quality Assurance and learn why BQA is so crucial to the industry. There will be demonstrations of low-stress handling techniques, which improve productivity, beef production, and reduce stress on both cattle and handlers.
