Fewer bunnies means more education in breeding rabbit show
Friday, August 3, 2012
They’re not the type of animals you think of seeing when you go to a county fair, but those youngsters who compete in the breeding rabbit show take it very seriously.
At the Thursday evening judging at the Jefferson City Jaycees Fair, all sizes of rabbits were featured.
“We’ve got Mini Lop’s with their floppy ears and meat rabbits with their big hind quarters,” said Ann Marie Scott, the supervisor of the rabbit show. “Our smallest rabbits are 2-3 pounds and the largest are around 18 pounds.”
