Quality Assurance & Drug Use Notification Forms

Logan County Quality Assurance Program

Chapter 901-19-07 of the Ohio Administrative Code is a mandatory rule that requires all exhibitors to complete a quality assurance program prior to exhibiting terminal or partial terminal livestock in a junior livestock show. The program is conducted cooperatively by the Exhibition Sponsor, OSU Extension, Ohio Agricultural Education, or Agricultural Commodity Organizations.

All Logan County Junior Fair Livestock Exhibitors must attend an approved Quality Assurance program, regardless of livestock species by May 1st.

If it is an exhibitor’s first year, regardless of age, a parent or guardian is required to attend an in-person Quality Assurance Program.

Here is a handout that goes over QA in Logan County.
