4-H members exhibiting animals entering the food production system (swine, sheep, goats, beef cattle and dairy cattle) will be required to complete the Youth for the Quality Care of Animal certification (YQCA). It will replace former trainings: PQA and QAEC. This program is the industry-standard certification. The training must be completed each year through either an online test or face-to-face training session. Note: 4-H members showing poultry, rabbits, horses, dogs, cats, guinea pigs and small pets are not required to take this training, but will still be required to take the Quality Assurance and Ethics (QAEC) training. QAEC training is only required once in the member’s career.
