YQCA is an annual education and certification program focused on food safety, animal well-being and character awareness for youth ages 8 to 21 who produce and/or show pigs, beef cattle, dairy cattle, sheep, goats, rabbits, and poultry.
The program has been designed by extension specialists and national livestock program managers to ensure it is accurate, current and relevant to the needs of the animal industry and shows and is appropriate for youth.
This training will be delivered in the form of an interactive lecture with slides provided by YQCA. Participants will be expected to pay attention to the presentation and interact as appropriate. Following the training, all youth who participated will receive a certificate from YQCA that will meet the Fremont 4-H Expo, Dodge County Fair, and Nebraska State Fair requirement for youth quality assurance training.
Youth can also select the online version of training at yqcaprogram.org - the cost is $12.00.
A final in-person training will be offered on June 7 from 3:00-4:30pm.
