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.
