In the fall of 2017, Wisconsin replaced the MAQA (Meat Animal Quality Assurance) state program with the Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) national program. This new and interactive program provides youth a number of options for an annual quality assurance youth certification. YQCA was created for youth in the Beef, Dairy, Goat, Poultry, Rabbit, Sheep, and Swine projects.
