YQCA MANDATORY TRAINING FOR All MARKET EXHIBITORS

All junior market animal exhibitors MUST complete a Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) training certification class (online or in-person), unless they have an existing Youth Pork Quality Assurance (YPQA) certification that is valid through July 31, 2022. The YQCA training certification course can be done either in person or online, but must be completed prior to the start of the 2022 Delaware State Fair (July 21, 2022). 

  • This mandatory training requirement shall apply to all those exhibiting market animals. The training certification is not limited to only market animal exhibitors and all exhibitors are encouraged to consider completing this course. 

  • If you are a junior market animal exhibitor and have not attended or completed the online YQCA course nor currently have an existing YPQA valid certification by the start of the 2022 Delaware State Fair (July 21, 2022), you will not be permitted to show your market animal(s) and will be asked to remove your animal from the grounds. 

  • For more detailed information about the YQCA requirement and how to fulfill the requirements click the pdf below.

ONLINE IRS FORM W-9

When adding your first entry to your new exhibitor account, you will be prompted to complete and sign an online version of an IRS Form W-9. The completion and submission of the W-9 is mandatory for all livestock exhibitors. Unless you complete the online IRS Form W-9 you will not be able to make your first entry. We are gathering this information so that the IRS reporting requirements for premiums and auction earnings can be met. Additionally, this information will allow us to aggregate your premium and auction earnings and report this number to you in early January so you can use it when preparing your tax return.

  • If you are creating an exhibitor account that identifies joint individual owners (i.e. Jill and John Smith), please decide in advance whose information and social security number will be included on the IRS Form W-9.

  • If the exhibitor account is being set up in a farm, business, school or club name, you will need to submit your farm, business, school or club E.I.N. (employer identification number) which normally begins with 51-.

  • Please make sure that the name and social security number/employer identification number (E.I.N.) supplied on the W-9 matches the exhibitor registered on the exhibitor account.
