The purpose of this project was to create an up-to-date curriculum for livestock quality assurance for county fairs throughout the United States to utilize if they desire to do so. The project included creating a PowerPoint presentation, a take home handout that summarizes the PowerPoint, an assessment based on the PowerPoint, and a website to make the material accessible to the public free of charge. A vital part of the project was to present the materials via a workshop at the Western Fairs Association conference. The curriculum created was designed for first-time showman or younger exhibitors with the hope to show the ins and outs of showing at a fair without exposing them to the illegal activities that can be associated with livestock shows.
