The Relationship
between Quality
Counts and the local
County Fair
Where does 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...
“4-H and FFA start at
home and so does
Quality Counts!”
The Future of the
Youth Livestock Show
Program Depends on
Us!

    61. 61. Thank You!
    62. 62. It’s A Question of Ethics  You should: (a) Take the medicated feed. The show doesn’t do drug tests anyway. (b) Turn down the offer of medicated feed, thinking that you can find a neighbor who can let you borrow enough feed to last through the holidays (c) Decline the feed and politely inform the store clerk that it’s important to follow the rules about using medicines and drugs (d) What the clerk is suggesting is illegal. Notify your Ag Teacher of County Agent about the clerks suggestion.
    63. 63. It’s A Question of Ethics  You should: (a) Get your brother and leave (b) Point out to your little brother what you see and tell him that it is wrong and why (c) Tell your dad what you saw and have him call the Ag Teacher or County Agent (d) Call Bob and ask him what the deal is
    64. 64. It’s A Question of Ethics  You should: (a) Call Bob and ask him what is going on (b) Tell your dad and ask him to call your County Agent or Ag Teacher (c) Tell all your friends what you saw in Bob’s barn and let them know that he is cheating and using illegal drugs to make his show pigs better (d) Unload the feed back into Bob’s barn and leave as soon as possible to try to erase all evidence that you were there
    65. 65. It’s A Question of Ethics  You should: (a) Politely decline the pig (b) Take the pig. You should get first choice anyway because your dad is the one who went and purchased the pigs for everyone (c) Take the pig. If you don’t, someone else will and you will have to show against a better pig (d) Take the good pig back and draw for the pig with the other members. You may get lucky and draw this one anyway
    66. 66. It’s a Question of Ethics  You should: (a) Take the help. You have spent a great deal of time with your pig and really want to show (b) Take the help. The practice is sort-of-legal. It hasn’t been identified as illegal. Besides, others are sure to be cheating and this practice isn't considered cheating yet (c) Decline the help and look for an alternative that is sort-of-more-legal (d) Decline the help. Try to naturally and legally get the weight off and hope that your pig can lose the weight for the show. Learn from this mistake and do better with your next swine project
