Every member taking livestock (not horses or dogs) must attend Quality Assurance training. First year members taking a livestock project must attend a county wide quality assurance session and a parent/guardian must be present.
There are four options for completing quality assurance training.
- Attend one of the county wide trainings offered in Seneca County.
Countywide Quality Assurance will be offered on the following dates. All first year members taking a livestock project must attend one of these sessions with a parent/guardian present. The test out option will be offered again this year only at the countywide Quality Assurance options listed below. Youth ages 15-18 years who pass the Quality Assurance test can test out of their annual Quality Assurance program permanently. These ages are as of January 1, 2020 – a youth’s 4-H age. A Quality Assurance Study Guide can be found on the Livestock Resource page at https://ohio4h.org/statewide-programs/animal-sciences/livestock/livestock-resources
