LQA&E Training

Minnesota 4-H Livestock Quality Assurance and Ethics Policy (full policy available at this link)

All youth participating as a State Fair 4-H livestock exhibitor in beef, dairy, sheep, swine, poultry, rabbits, meat and dairy goat and lama must have completed the a Livestock Quality Assurance and Ethics workshop. Certification is required prior to county fair qualifying show and is good for three fair seasons. The level of training required is determined by the grade of the youth at the time the training takes place.
Note: Since 2006, pre-State Fair age 4-Hers are recommended to be certified.
Some counties do, however, require certification of swine members (grades 3-13) due to packer requirements at county fair.
