YQCA Training for Animal Show Certification outside of County Fairs

If you plan on attending any livestock shows beyond your county fair, you should get your YQCA certification (Replaces MQA Training). YQCA is a Nationally recognized youth animal handler training and is now the only certification recognized by the National Western Stock Show and Arizona National Livestock Show. Certification is online (small fee required) and must be renewed annually.
