Youth Quality Care of (Livestock) Animals (YQCA) Training

Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) "certification is designed to be useful and (will) help prepare you for your (livestock) show but also prepare you as a young producer in animal agriculture industry. That’s why the program includes information on multiple species even though you may only be raising one or two – we hope that you see that by raising animals you are part of a larger community that relies on the good faith of everyone doing their part. Also, we hope this training continues to spark your interest in animal agriculture so that you consider pursuing a career in the industry or becoming an entrepreneur and continuing to raise animals to meet the demands of a growing world."

The training will be held virtually, via Zoom on Friday, July 31, from 10:30 a.m. until noon. Register using Eventbrite here . Please do NOT register through any other websites.
