YQCA Brochure pg 1

We are excited to announce that the new quality assurance (QA) curriculum called Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) is now active. All youth showing RABBITS, POULTRY, BEEF, DAIRY CATTLE, GOATS, HOGS, and SHEEP should now navigate to the NEW online YQCA course at yqca.learngrow.io. Exhibitors are REQUIRED to be certified no later than JULY 15, 2018 for the 2018 North Dakota State Fair or they will NOT be allowed to exhibit their livestock at the show. See the YQCA Brochure for more information.

You will use your FAMILY 4HOnline login and password information to access the courses for the ACTIVE youth in your family.  Only ACTIVE members will show in the drop-down menu for access to the course.There is a button for families that have forgotten their password. 4-H’ers complete their modules online for $12 and print off their certificate of completion. 4-H’ers should maintain a copy of the certification as this will be REQUIRED for those showing at the North Dakota State Fair in 2018. 4-H’ers MUST give their YQCA certification ID number to their Extension Office once they have successfully completed the module. Your Extension agent will record the YQCA certification ID number in 4HOnline (Extension agents: Login in to 4Honline > search for 4-H’ers name > click on 4-H’ers record > click on additional information > scroll down to Youth Forms on File highlighted in yellow > add YQCA ID date and number to the LQA/Ethics training).  Youth have the option to complete the YQCA certification for $3 in an instructor-led training (ILT) environment if hosted in your area. This will show up in the drop-down menu for ILT if available. You will NOT have access to YQCA educational material after completion of the ILT program. The online module option will give you continued access to the YQCA educational material at all times, which is a great tool to reference and studying for livestock quiz bowl.
