Eight Core Concepts


The Relationship between Quality Counts and the local County Fair


Wheredoes it start?

  • Quality Counts starts at home (At your local or regional shows)


In Fort Bend County…

350 4-H members participate in livestock projects at Local and County shows


Major Shows

100 of those exhibitors, exhibit at the major shows

State Fair of Texas


Question

  • If Quality Counts is just for major show exhibitors, what about the other 250 in my program on the County level?


County Fair Concerns

  • County Fairs also have to be concerned with the quality of products that are sold to buyers at fair time


“4-H and FFA start at home and so does Quality Counts!”


The Future of the Youth Livestock Show Program Depends on Us!
