FSQA – Mandatory Training and Testing
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
FSQA is mandatorythroughout the state for all 4th-12th graders showing those specific species above for county and state fairs. Youth must attend a training or take a test all at no cost. Check with the Extension Office to see if the member is certified or not.
· Grades 4-6 Must attend a training each year

· Grades 10-12 Attend training each year OR complete senior test
