This training is open to anyone from Michigan. Allegan County 4-H youth are reminded that to sell in the 4-H Livestock Auction at the Allegan County Fair, 4-H market swine project members must have current Youth PQA Plus certification. Youth’s Age is determined January 1st of the current year. (Youth must be at 9-19 yrs old on January 1, 2017 in order to be in the Allegan County 4-H Market Swine project and be certified.) Beginners (Youth age 9-11) must re-certify annually by attending a Youth PQA Plus certification workshop. Youth age 12-14 and youth age 15-19 can certify/re-certify annually by attending a Youth PQA Plus certification workshop OR can certify by receiving a 70% correct on a test. Once certified by test the youth is not required to re-certify until the next age bracket is reached. All youth who attend a workshop will at least receive a 1 yr. certification. If they pass the test they receive a certificate good until the next age group – if they fail they will be certified for 1 year. Parents are encouraged to come with youth, but will not be able to be certified.
Youth MUST pre-register to attend and classes are limited to 30. Reservations are first come first serve. Pre-register by calling 269-673-0370x2557 or emailing Dian Liepe at email@example.com.
