Quality assurance is mandatory for exhibitors of market animals, lactating dairy and lactating goats.  QA must be completed by June 1, 2020 in order for the exhibitor to be eligible to show and sell at the 2020 Darke County Fair.  The ODA has suspended the requirement that QA be completed 45 days prior to exhibition for 2020.

As of June 2, 2020, youth have one remaining option to complete QA in 2020:

  • Online QA from yqca.org

The fee for this online program is $12.00.  There are three units to the program and you must pass all three levels in order to complete the certification requirement.  Please note:  There is an online option for youth 8-11; however, the ODA will not accept this certification for our QA purposes. **Please note: for 2020 only, the ODA will accept online certification for youth ages 8-11.**

The website for the online program is http://yqca.org/For 2020 only: youth should login using the FFA & Independent sign up button.  It is the responsibility of the youth completing the online program to provide proof of completion to the Extension Office by June 1, 2020.
