Reminders about Livestock Quality Assurance from the Muskingum County 4-H Family Handbook:
Livestock Quality Assurance (LQA) Certification is required for all youth exhibiting a market animal, lactating dairy cow or lactating dairy goat at the Muskingum County Fair.
Certification can be obtained in two ways:
1) Youth can participate in an LQA program provided by OSU Extension.

- Youth may attend any LQA regardless of the animal they are exhibiting.
- Parent attendance is not required, but encouraged for LQA Programs
2) Youth can participate in the test out option.
All youth 12-14 years of age (4-H age) may take a LQA test designed for their age group. If they pass the test with a score of 70% or greater, the youth will be certified in LQA until they turn 15 years old.
All youth 15-18 years of age (4-H age) may take a LQA test designed for their age group. If they pass the test with a score of 70% or greater, the youth will be certified in LQA for the remainder of their Junior Fair years.
Youth are only permitted to take one test per calendar year. If a youth does not pass the LQA test, they will be required to attend a LQA program to gain certification.
