Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA)

YQCA is a State-wide required training for anyone entering livestock at a fair in California.  If you plan to show a livestock project, proof of course completion will be required for your Blue Ribbon Entry completion for AgFest. You may attend instructor-led training (often offered for FFA clubs and some larger 4-H groups) or complete online web-based training.

YQCA certificates must be renewed each year.

Each child will need their own registration. For more information and to register to take the course, go to
