All market and lactating animal exhibitors must attend a Quality Assurance Session within the State of Ohio to exhibit an animal at the Miami County Fair. Exhibitors of swine must also receive PQA certification with the required Quality Assurance. The session must be put on by a qualified instructor. Exhibitors of the ages 12-18 have the option to take a test given by a qualified instructor to test out of Quality Assurance. The Miami County Ag Society will be providing (2) test dates, (6) Quality Assurance sessions and (1) make up session.
Exhibitors of the Miami County Fair who choose to attend Quality Assurance & PQA sessions given by instructors other than the Miami County Ag Society must provide a certificate form from the instructor. The form must state the instructor’s name, location, date of session and instructor’s phone number. This form is to be submitted with exhibitor’s entry form no later than June 1.
It is the exhibitor’s responsibility to provide the form at the time of entries, only cattle exhibitors do not have to turn in a form with entry; cattle exhibitors must have certificate turned in by June 1. Forms will only be accepted with entry forms (cattle due by June 1). Exhibitors that attend Quality Assurance provided by Miami County Ag Society are not required to provide certificate with entry form as the Ag Society will have records of attendance. Parents of exhibitors are NOT required to attend Quality Assurance sessions.
