As required by the Ohio Department of Agriculture, all youth exhibiting livestock at a county fair must attend a QA session. At the discretion of OSU Extension, or Ohio agricultural education, an exhibitor may pass a test based on the appropriate skill level for their age (12-14 or 15-18) under the supervision of OSU Extension or Ohio agricultural education before exhibiting terminal or partial terminal market livestock, including market poultry, lactating dairy cattle, and lactating goats in a junior livestock show. Youth who pass the test will be exempt from annual QA re-certification until they move to the next age bracket or they are no longer a junior exhibitor (19 years of age or older on January 1 of their last year).

If a youth does not pass the test, they must attend a face-to-face QA session. Youth are only given one chance to pass the test annually.

If any member is interested in this option, please contact Kiersten to schedule a time before March 31, 2023.
