The 4-H Food Safety and Quality Assurance (FSQA) program will again be in place for the current 4-H year. FSQA stands for Food Safety Quality Assurance. This program helps 4-H producers understand their role in producing food, and help them make wise, ethical decisions related to food production. If you exhibit the following livestock are required to be FSQA certified: Beef, Bottle/Bucket Calf, Dairy, Goat, Swine, Sheep, Rabbit (if it is not a pet project), and Poultry. You MUST become FSQA certified to exhibit your animals at the County Fair and/or Iowa State Fair.
