Maryland AHQA Training now online

Beginning in 2011, all Maryland 4-H members enrolled in alpaca, beef, dairy, goat, horse and pony, poultry, sheep, swine and rabbit projects MUST complete a new online quality assurance training program to be eligible to exhibit their project animals in Maryland County 4-H and State 4-H Shows.

4-Hers are required to complete the training program in 2011, unless they completed the online training course during 2010 as one of the four pilot counties: Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Howard, and Frederick. Even if a member completed the training at a face-to-face session in their county in 2010, they MUST complete the new online training program this year.

The quality assurance training teaches best management practices for 4-H animal science projects.
