All 4-H members in breeding and market beef, sheep, swine, goats, poultry, rabbits, dairy animal, dog, and horse projects must complete Meat Quality Assurance training the first two years they show livestock, and then again when they change age divisions. You may attend any MQA in the area, be sure to sign in and complete the quiz so your county will know you attended. The hands-on learning stations will be used again with changes in the stations.
