Warren County 4Livestock members,

YQCA (Youth for the Quality Care of Animals) is REQUIRED for those planning to exhibit at the Warren County 4-H Fair and/or Indiana State Fair in beef, goat, poultry, rabbit, sheep and swine. Page 2 has more information and four great opportunities for you to get your certification.

 YQCA TRAINING REQUIRED

Thank you all for being patient as YQCA transitioned to a new platform. Please refer to the email I sent out on March 30th for help navigating the new platform.

Reminder: In order to exhibit beef, goats, poultry, rabbits, sheep, and/or swine at the Warren County 4-H Fair and/or the Indiana State Fair, 4-H members are required to become Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) Certified. NO EXCEPTIONS! 

4-H Youth ages 8-18 may obtain certification by attending in-person training's at a cost of $3. These in-person training's are offered all over the state of Indiana between now and fair season. Youth do not have to take the training in their home county. Youth of any age may opt to obtain their certification by completing an online training. Online training for certification cost $12 and includes a quiz. To find a listing of current available training's and to register, visit yqcaprogram.org.

Registered Animals  
Barrows and Gilts will be required to have registration papers and those papers need to be transferred to the 4-H member. You will need to have your registration papers at time of check-in at the fair.

Swine Release
Swine who are not auction or barn bid animals will be released after the Swine Sweepstakes Show concludes; approx. 8:30 pm on Thursday, June 23.

YQCA Training is required to show at the Warren County 4-H Fair.
