4-H Quality Animal Care Training to be Held

To ensure and instill proper practices while taking care of livestock, Christian County 4-H members will soon have the opportunity to participate in the yearly Youth for the Quality Care of Animals training. This University of Illinois Extension program is required to be taken by 4-Her’s who show and work with livestock.

Sara Marten, County Director for the University of Illinois Extension says the event will be held Saturday, April 13th at the Christian County Extension Office, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.


Rules and regulations can change on a yearly basis says Marten. Another reason why this event is a yearly requirement for 4-Her’s exhibiting beef, dairy, goat, sheep, and swine.


Marten says 4-Her’s will practice hands-on skills during the YQCA training.


Those interested in being involved in the YQCA training must be resisted by May 1st and can find registration by visiting extension.illinois.edu/cjmm/4-h-christian-county. The in-person event fee is $3 and the online version of the training is $12.
For more information contact Jessica Jaffry, 4-H Youth Development Coordinator, at 217-854-9604.

Sara Marten appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
