Records on county inserts should be turned in with the previous years book. With your livestock book you also must turn in the completed interview form which is found below with each respective species. In order to complete your project and exhibit at the fair you must turn in your record book with interview sheet. Optional is to also complete the skillathons which are listed below with each species. 



Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA)

Some national shows are going to be requiring that youth exhibitors complete Youth for the Quality Care for Animals (YQCA) training in order to exhibit. OSU Extension 4-H Youth Development program, in partnership with the Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) has endorsed the following option for youth who are officially enrolled in a 4-H and/or FFA livestock/food animal project.

Youth who intend to show their project animal(s) at exhibition (e.g., county or state fair) have the option to complete an online YQCA session.


DISCLAIMER: All Coshocton County 4-H members may take YQCA to complete their annual QA requirement. Please note that this is the last option to complete QA Training. Also note, this course has a fee. This is not OSU’s program, therefore, this fee cannot be waived. It is, however, the only online QA that is approved through the Ohio Department of Agriculture. County fairs are not guaranteed, though we hope they will continue as planned so it is you and your family’s decision to complete this course understanding the circumstances.

  3. The cost is $12.
  4. Youth will need their 4HOnline login and password. Youth MUST register using 4HOnline for their results to automatically show up in 4HOnline.
  5. There is no test-out option for YQCA.
