National Beef Quality Audit – 2016

The National Beef Quality Audit – 2016 marks the 25th year since the original National Beef Quality Audit was conducted and represents the opportunity for the beef industry to assess factors that impact the quality, quantity, and value of cattle, carcasses, and by-products. The audit is funded by the Beef Checkoff and is managed by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association through the Beef Quality Assurance program.
