Quality Counts

Quality Counts is a banner Extension program that is used to teach youth livestock exhibitors and leaders character education and the importance of quality assurance. This program can also be implemented in a wide area of 4-H by teaching responsibility, ethics, and development of moral character.

Quality Counts is broken into four chapters with lessons and supporting activities for each lesson. There are eight core concepts (six pillars of character, purpose of 4-H/FFA/FCCLA, purpose of livestock projects, decision making/goal setting, impact of livestock projects on red meat industry, responsibility of producing a safe product, medication use/reading and following labels, and animal care and their well being.

Each chapter has activities that support and help teach these core concepts. After youth and leaders have been properly trained in Quality Counts, they may begin to teach other youth and leaders. The Quality Counts program will be taught at every Adult Leaders meetings, Adult Project Trainings, Livestock Judging Practice, 4-H Club Mtgs, Showmanship Clinics, Project Clinics, project visits, etc.
