SwineWhy Quality Assurance?

Youth livestock producers are one link in the chain of wholesome food production. Each link in the chain relies on all other segments to make sure the product remains safe. By following good health, nutrition and management practices you can make sure your animals perform at their highest level, and are a safe, wholesome product for consumers.

In order to educate youth and adults about the "8 Good Production Practices" all youth livestock exhibitors are required to attend a Quality Assurance & Food Safety certification workshop prior to participating in their county fair and/or state fair.
