2022 Online Quality Assurance Option
Youth, age 12 as of January 1, who are officially enrolled in 4-H and/or FFA livestock/food animal projects and who intend to show their project animal at exhibition (e.g., county or state fair) have the option to complete an online Youth for the Quality Care for Animals (YQCA) session. YQCA is in partnership with The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CFAES), OSU Extension 4-H Youth Development program and ODA. For the training to meet the Ohio Youth Food Animal QA requirement for the project year:
The online module MUST be completed for the correct 4-H age for the youth. If not, you are required to repay and retake the correct module or attend QA in person.
*The Test Out option offered is NOT accepted by Ohio 4-H!
The online module must be completed by JUNE 28 prior to first show for the Henry County Fair or 45 days before Ohio State Fair show.
You must complete the annual online session within the QA calendar year (Oct. 1- Sept. 30).
The other online courses do not meet the Ohio Youth Food Animal QA certification requirements (ie. BQA, PQA, BEST, etc.)
Youth can go to the following website to take the age-appropriate on-line module for $12 PER CHILD. Paid by the individual or family. Log in site is: yqcaprogram.org
***Be sure to send a copy of your certificate to email@example.com when you have completed the module. If your certificate is not sent, you will not fulfill your Quality Assurance Requirement.
