YQCA is required for youth who will show animals at the Dane County Fair. Youth can complete this certification online anytime. There is a $12 fee for the online training. Currently, there are no in-person meetings scheduled.
YQCA is designed as an annual education and certification program focused on food safety, animal well-being and character awareness for youth ages 8 to 21. The program has been designed by extension specialists and national livestock program managers to ensure it is accurate, current and relevant to the needs of the animal industry and shows and is appropriate for youth.
YQCA has a new platform as of March 23, and certificates completed prior to March 23 will not be accessible on the new platform.
