Youth in Animal Agriculture: Excellence in Exhibition (Free course)

Welcome to the Excellence in Exhibition course! Animal agriculture is important to Iowa’s economy and is an important part of 4-H and FFA. Working with and exhibiting animals is a great experience! Not only do you gain knowledge about animals, but you also develop responsibility, good sportsmanship, and confidence.

However, there are diseases that can be spread between people and animals, especially when you have such close contact with your show animals. This course was created to teach you how to keep yourself and your animals safe and healthy so that you can continue to enjoy showing and teaching others about animal agriculture.

The course is divided into six separate lessons. Each should take 20–30 minutes to complete.

Learn more about this course by reading this introductory letter.
