4-H clover 4-H Livestock Quality Assurance Training (LQA)

4-H youth participating in the 4-H dairy goat show at the state fair.

Livestock Quality Assurance training helps youth provide excellent care for their food animals and ensure a high level of food safety to consumers. We designed it to enhance the educational experience of 4-H animal science projects

Do you hope to exhibit with 4-H at the Minnesota State Fair? All 4-H livestock exhibitors must complete livestock quality assurance training.

Two training options

Youth who complete either one of these training options will receive a certificate of completion.

Read the full Minnesota 4-H Livestock Quality Assurance Policy.

To view your completed LQA certifications, use the LQA status in 4-H Online tip sheet.

If you have any questions about your certification and eligibility, please contact your local Extension educator.
