Quality Systems Assessment 

The Agriculture Department has developed a program to verify and enroll cow/calf producers so they can supply source and age verified cattle.

The Agriculture Department will maintain an approved supplier list. The list is public and located below.

The QSA Program is limited to source and age verification only.

Producers can continue to sell cattle as they have in the past. No restrictions to selling cattle through certain locations or certain times exist. Once the cattle are tagged and remain tagged, they are sources and age verified.
