Quality Counts Updates & Reminders
Information: Quality Counts is open and ready for youth who need to take the course for the first time or renew their verification. IMPORTANT REMINDER: Exhibitors only have to take the course once per grade level division: junior 3-5, intermediate 6-8, senior 9-12. For a copy of PDF INSTRUCTIONS: CLICK HERE. Quality Counts verification is required for all major livestock show exhibitors. The number must be used on major livestock show entries (therefore, it is important that exhibitors complete this before entry). Your county or local shows may also require Quality Counts. FOR QUESTIONS RELATED TO TECHNICAL ISSUES OR LOGIN INFORMATION CONTACT: LEARNONLINE@AG.TAMU.EDU Here is also a link to FAQ for both exhibitor families and for County Extension Agents and Agricultural Science Teachers.
