Monies from the sale of market projects, fair premiums and awards go directly to the 4-H and FFA families involved in the fair. Over 400 Gallia County Youth were trained in Quality Assurance Best Practices for Food Production insuring high quality products being produced and sold in Gallia County.
Quality Assurance Guidelines
The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) Advisory Committee on Livestock Exhibitions has recommended and voted on the following rule change for 2018. It will go into effect in late January 2018 after going through the proper procedures for changes to the Ohio Revised Code.
§ Junior fair exhibitors ages 8 to 11 shall annually participate in a face-to-face education session that is taught by an authorized instructor.
§ Junior fair exhibitors ages 12 to 19 shall either annually complete an educational session or successfully complete the test-out option.
Regardless of age, junior fair exhibitors shall successfully complete the educational program not less than 45 days prior to the opening date of the exhibition in which they will participate.
Thus, QA training and certification must be completed not less than 45 days prior to the opening day of your county fair.
- Also, they need to know that this includes the Ohio State Fair, so if they plan to show at OSF and they have a later fair they will need to complete QA 45 days before the opening day of the Ohio State Fair, regardless of what day they show.
Please share this information with your county Ag. Societies, Jr. Fair coordinators, FFA advisors, other fair officials and your Jr. Fair families.
- All Poultry, Miniature/Pet/Companion Goat and Rabbit exhibitors will need to attend or test out of QA.
- Members, if you plan to exhibit any market animals or any of the ones mentioned above to the 2018 Gallia County Jr. fair you will need to attend or test out of QA:
Quality Assurance – MARCH 26, 2022 at the Gallia County Fairgrounds. TIMES TO BE DETERMINED. Please note: parents of first time exhibitors are encouraged to attend the training with the exhibitor.
