The new quality counts system was put in place in 2018. A quality counts number is required to exhibit an animal at all major livestock shows.
There are three age divisions for the Quality Counts Program and students must retake the course and test as they move up through the age divisions; so it is possible that some students may take this course and exam three times.
Junior Grades 3rd-5th
Intermediate Grades 6th-8th
Senior Grades 9th-12th
