New Rabbit Fitting and Showing Guides

Fitting and showing rabbits gives 4-H'ers the chance to compete with others based on the skills they demonstrate, general knowledge of rabbits and the participant's preparation, attitude and behavior. This bulletin underwent a major revision in 2011 and contains objectives and guidelines for the 4-H participant in rabbit fitting and showing contests. Information covered includes feeding, care, grooming and conditioning. The bulletin provides full color step-by-step instructions with photo illustrations for completing the contest examination and includes a rabbit showmanship scorecard. We have purchased a limited supply of these updated manuals and are making them available to Jackson County 4-H'ers at no charge. Please contact our office if you would like to pick up a copy.
