4-H and FFA members enrolling in any market and/or breeding livestock or small animal projects for the first time regardless of age, must attend a Colorado Meat Quality Assurance (MQA) program. 4-H and FFA members will be required to attend a Colorado MQA program a minimum of twice during the course of their 4-H career – once as a junior (8-13 years old, 4-H age) and once again within one year after becoming a senior (14-18 years old, 4-H age) 4-H member.
We have completed all of our face-to-face classes. The only option is the virtual MQA class. This class is valid for only 1 year. You need to complete the virtual MQA class by Friday, June 4th and score an 80% or better on the test to be eligible to show at the Weld County Fair, Southeast Weld County Fair and Colorado State Fair. After you review the MQA program you need to take the MQA test to complete the course. A score of 80% will be needed to pass the course, if you score below the needed 80% you can re-take the exams as many times as necessary to obtain an 80% score.
Below is the online class for Juniors and the online class for Intermediates and Seniors. Please select the correct class and review the information on each page. On the last page is a link to take the test.
