This event is open to youth enrolled in Ogemaw County 4-H. Per the Ogemaw County 4-H Small & Large Animal Market Rules, all youth exhibiting an animal at the Ogemaw County Fair are REQUIRED to take a YQCA training each year. There will be four different sessions offered for 2023 (all with the same content), with a maximum of 30 participants in each session - spaces will fill quickly, and walk-ins will not be accepted.
YQCA is designed as an annual education and certification program focused on food safety, animal well-being and character awareness for youth ages 8 to 21 producing and/or showing 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. https://yqcaprogram.org/local/overview_background.php
