  5. Jr. Fair Livestock Quality Assurance

    Jul. 23, 2020

     Quality Assurance (QA) is required by the Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) for all youth exhibition participants to complete each year. This training teaches youth the ten Good Production Practices for raising and selling a market animal at the county fair. This year the ODA has waived the 45-day prior to exhibition rule, but still requires youth to participate in a training prior to the start of the county fair. QA is required by each market livestock exhibitor in order to show and sell at the Morgan County Junior Fair.
