Beef Quality Assurance Transportation Training

The Right Way is the Only Way

Transportation Quality Assurance plays a critical role in the health and welfare of cattle. By using best practices, transporters can save the beef industry millions of dollars each year. When a transporter participates in the program, they are showing consumers they are ready to take every step possible to keep cattle as healthy and safe as possible.

The program covers many topics including:

  • Cattle handling guidelines & diagrams
  • Checklists for loading/unloading
  • Checklists for hot/cold weather factors
  • Checklists for fit/injured/weak cattle
  • Checklist for traveling
  • Loading suggestions and worksheets
  • Biosecurity & Emergency Action Plans

    *All drivers delivering cattle to Cargill U.S. slaughter plants are required to be certified by the Beef Quality Assurance Transportation and Training Certification Program (BQAT) for cattle transporters.
