TEXAS TRAIL— All major livestock shows require exhibitors to pass the quality counts “Texas Trail”.

It is an online self paced guided experience through Quality Assurance and Character Education with your livestock project.

The overall experience takes approximately two hours to complete, and can be stopped and restarted as many times as needed.

With a unique user log in, each participant has their own personal experience.

Exhibitors only need to be verified once as a junior and once again as a senior.

Junior is age eight and in the third grade through age 13 years of age as of the previous Aug. 31.

Senior is 14 years or older as of the previous August 31.

The Quality Counts website (http://agrilife.org/qualitycounts/ verification/) has a link to the test and additional information.

If you have questions, contact the extension office.

Remember, you must have the verification number to submit major show entries.
