4-H Livestock Quality Assurance and Ethics Training (LQA&E) is for youth participating in livestock projects
All youth participating as a State Fair 4-H livestock exhibitor in beef, dairy, sheep, swine, poultry, rabbits, meat and dairy goat and lama must have completed a Livestock Quality Assurance and Ethics workshop. Certification is required prior to the county fair qualifying show and is good for three fair seasons. The level of training required is determined by the grade of the youth at the time the training takes place. Note: Since 2006, pre-State Fair age 4-H'ers are recommended to be certified.
