Youth Market Animal Quality Assurance Program

New learning opportunity!  We will be putting on two sessions on youth Market Animal Quality Assurance. The purpose of the program will be to teach all youth participating in any market animal program the basics of quality assurance, and the general good production practices.  We will talk about herd health management, the proper way to use antibiotics and other medicines, how important record keeping is, how to keep good treatment and other records, providing good animal care, and other assorted topics.  There will be lots of hands on activities to participate in.
Not only that, but participants will also be Youth PQA Plus (Pork Quality Assurance) certified when they leave.  This isn't only open to exhibitors showing swine, it is good information for EVERYONE with a market animal to have!
The two options are: January 31 from 6-8, and February 13 from 6-8.  We need a minimum of 5 kids per time with no more than 15 per session.
If you are interested and planning on coming to a session, please RSVP by January 25 at this doodle poll site-

If you have any questions or want more information, e-mail Sarah or call the extension office!
