The Holiday Classic Clinics and Prospect Shows are intended to provide an educational opportunity for new families participating in the livestock project area.

The newly updated Quality Counts system is now available to 4-H livestock exhibitors. The new curriculum has been designed to better equip our youth livestock exhibitors with the most relevant and timely information related to the livestock project area. Focused on quality assurance and character education, Quality Counts is designed to teach young people the importance of displaying good character in carrying out livestock projects, and in every aspect of their lives.
**There is a very important one-pager attached with detailed instructions of how students should enroll/login to the course.
ALL EXHIBITORS will need to re-certify under the new system if you plan to show a livestock project at any Major livestock show in Texas.
