Rabbit Projects – Order Now
September 1, 2017 @ 8:00 am - September 18, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
Fall is approaching, so it is time to start planning your Bexar County Show Rabbit Meat Pen projects. The rabbit show date is Friday December 29, 2017. Show rules state that meat pens are not to be over 70 days old, with a gestation period of 30 days. That means bunnies should be born on October 20, 2017, and does bred on September 20, 2017. Many sellers will not breed their does until they receive an order and many need time to schedule ahead of the breeding date, so it is time to get hopping! A source for meat pen breeders is here or at www.arba.net, click on member resources, click on find a breeder.
Rabbit Meat Pen Validation dates is scheduled for Monday, November 27, 2017 at Judson High School; Tuesday, November 28, 2017 at Southwest High School – Ag Class; and Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at Helotes Ag Center, all starting at 7 p.m., with more information is future emails. Remember that a breeding rabbit project can be year round with well over 50 shows state wide every year which 4-Hers can participate including the State Fair, Ft Worth, San Angelo, and Houston Livestock Shows.
