Clubs: please use the 4-H Treasurers Book to record monthly statements for club meetings. When doing audits for this year keep in mind that to do the audits the Extension Office will be looking for the treasurer book, checkbook register and bank statements. To help guide you through the year, there are some helpful sheets to see that each month is recorded accurately.

From the State 4-H Office—In today's world, food safety is one of animal producers' biggest responsibilities. With over 15,000 Iowa 4-H'ers enrolled in livestock projects, about 17 million pounds of meat is produced each year. The goal of this program is to help youth and their parents better understand what they can do to produce the safest food possible.
4-H and FFA members will need to be FSQA certified to show at the county and state fairs. FSQA stands for Food Safety Quality Assurance. Those that need to be certified include: market and breeding beef, swine, sheep and dairy (both dairy cattle and dairy goat), meat goat, rabbit and poultry. This is a great way to teach 4-H’ers and FFA members about record keeping, veterinarian and drug usage in project livestock, healthy production practices, care and handling, feed and feed additives, and biosecurity and ethics. http://www.extension.iastate.edu/4h/page/fsqa-food-safety-quality-assurance
