The new coordinator for Colorado’s Beef Quality Assurance program has been announced — Libby Biggler began in her role at the first of September.
Biggler: “I’m really excited for this position because it plays an economically important role for cattle producers. I’m really excited to be able to assist cattle producers in making those decisions. Consumers are more and more now than ever concerned about where their food comes from. We need to make sure that we have the transparency there so that we can be comfortable opening our doors and letting consumers see that we really are doing the right things when it comes to raising cattle and ultimately raising a product that they can put on their plate.”
Biggler is a Colorado-native. She participated on the Northwest College livestock judging team prior to her being a a member of the Colorado State University’s Livestock judging team and president of the Block and Bridle Club. Biggler graduated from CSU with degrees in animal science and journalism and technical communication. Prior to her new role with the BQA program, she was the manager of member and affiliate services with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. She continues
Biggler: “My big goal is to really certify as many cattle producers that represent the most amount of cattle in the state so that our producers can ensure consumers that we are producing safe and wholesome beef.”
The Colorado BQA program coordinator position has been jointly funded by Colorado beef producers through the $1-per-head beef checkoff via the Colorado Beef Council and the Department of Animal Sciences at Colorado State University for more than a decade.
