PQA workshop on May 13

The Huntington County Extension Office announces the Pork Quality Assurance Plus (PQA+) workshop for 4-H Swine members for the 2013 4-H program year.

The workshop will be offered on May 13 and 14 from 7-8 p.m., at the 4-H Community Building, Hier's Park.

Youth in their first year of the 4-H swine project and those individuals who have not passed a certification test, administered by the County Extension Office, must attend this annual workshop.  Youth only need to attend one of the two scheduled evening workshops.

At the workshop, information about the 10 good production practices will be explained and dis- cussed. Youth must be certified in the PQA+ program to be eligible to sell in the 4-H Fair Livestock Swine Auction in July or show at the state fair in August.
