  • Quality County Verification Information – If you plan to participate in any of the majors (Fort Worth, San Antonio, San Angelo, Houston, State Fair of Texas or Star of Texas) you are required to complete the mandated Quality Counts Verification. Once you take the test and pass for your age division you will not have to take the test again, unless you are a junior member, you will then be required to take the senior level test when you reach the appropriate grade level.
  • For Livestock Exhibitors Only – To Practice and Take the Test Click Here.  Please Select 4-H/FFA option to assist if you ever participate in one of the two programs.

If the Quality Counts Verification you completed as a junior member has expired, you are required to take the Senior level verification.  This must be done prior to entry into any major fall, winter or spring livestock show.  Upon completing the verification process please email ag department to make them aware of your status.  You cannot enter you into any shows from this point forward without a senior level designation.
