FFA / 4-H Rabbit Meat Pen Project
It’s time to start signing up for FFA / 4-H for the 2016-2017 school year. Find out more about 4-H in Texas.
WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?
This project is suitable for youngsters of all ages from urban, suburban and rural communities. Rabbit projects include all aspects of rabbit management and the science behind it.
Young people learn about animal care, health, nutrition, physiology, breeding, genetics, housing, behavior, record keeping and presenting themselves and their animals to the public.
A Meat Pen Rabbit is usually purchased when it is 4 to 5 weeks old. However, if you want to get a really good pen you need to call the breeder several months before your show. Preferably 2 months before the breed date. When contacting the breeder have your County, show date, and breed date for the breeder. They will ask for this information when you call them. The rabbits that are normally used for meat pens are Californians or New Zealand whites. You will need to purchase 4 or 5 to grow out to make your meat pen of three. Reason for this is, some rabbits grow faster than others and the three rabbits that are shown need to be the same in size and weight.
We are taking orders for this show season 2016-2017. Contact us here at Tailspin Farms and get on our breeding list today.
Hope you have a Blessed day!
I’m here for you!
