Rabbit News for Fair: New Rules and Guidelines

Rabbit possession date is May 1st!!!

NEW THIS YEAR: There will be a Pre-Fair Rabbit Check-in. May 21, 2011 from 2-4pm in the MSU Extension office parking lot. Any member planning to take rabbits to the fair must attend AND bring their rabbit(s).

This is being implemented for a couple of reasons: to help out any members that are looking for some direction, and so Superintendents have a chance before fair to gather information needed about members planning to bring rabbits to the fair.

The information that will be needed include; breed, sex, class, tattoo # (each member can bring up to 4 possible entries). If the member is planning to bring a meat pen, they would need to bring the bred doe. We will have a tattoo kit on site if the rabbit needs to be tattooed. If you have any questions or if you have a schedule conflict with this date &/or time please contact Tim or Jackie Kingsbury. Tim cell 517-569-2903, Jackie cell 517-474-2811, or email kingsburytj@sbcglobal.net.
