New Market Sale Quality Assurance Class needs:

Members who wish to sell an animal in the 2015 Converse County 4-H/FFA Fair Market Sale must complete the Level 1 Quality Assurance Class during their first year in a market sale animal project (no matter what age the member is).

Members then must complete Level 2 during their first year as an intermediate member (11-13 years) or their second year in FFA and Level 3 during their first year as a senior member (14-18 years) or third year as an FFA member.

The Quality Assurance Classes correlate for both 4-H and FFA members and do not have to be taken multiple times if members are in both organizations. Members may take these classes earlier if they are ready for them. Members and parents can request attendance earlier by talking with the 4-H Educator or FFA advisor. Additional workshops, clinics and trainings will be offered throughout the year to help members assure that they are providing a quality product for the market sale buyers.  Please call the 4-H/Extension Office if you need more information or to RSVP for the below classes which are all held at the 4-H office (358-2417):

Level 1 (feed, water, housing, identification, preventative measures)   THURS 15 Jan 330-530pm

Level 2 (safe animal handling, bruising and meat quality)                      THURS 22 Jan 330-530pm

Level 3 (injections, withdrawl times and record keeping)                       THURS 29 Jan 330-530pm
