YQCA Certification

All youth who plan to participate in a Marion County Livestock Show need to complete the YQCA Certification before entering fair exhibits.

Youth planning to exhibit in the  Kansas State Fair Grand Drive and/or the Kansas Junior Livestock Show (KJLS) need to be aware of the Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) requirement. Both state shows will require ALL exhibitors to be YQCA certified. This includes youth showing market animals, commercial females, and registered purebred breeding females.  Click here for a flyer with more information.  Click here for instructions regarding the online certification.
