This program is accepted at many livestock shows and fairs, which require youth quality assurance. YQCA includes information for youth showing pigs, beef cattle, dairy cattle, sheep, goats, market rabbits, and poultry. This workshop is part of a grant, written by Jim O’Connell, for on farm health and safety. There is no cost to attend, but 4H Youth must register ahead of time with YQCA.
