Rabbits/Cavvies ProgramDescription/ background /fun facts
This project is suitable for youth of all ages from urban, suburban, and rural communites. Lessons include all aspects of rabbit management and the science behind it. Youth learn about animal care, health, nutrition, physiology, breeding, genetics, housing, behavior, record keeping and presenting themselves and their animals to the public. Some participants may choose to enter their rabbits in shows and fairs or to produce meat and fur, but neither activity is required. Youth may be challenged by the many faceted Rabbit Science Decathalon, held each year at the state fair and similar exercises in many counties.
The Lake Plains Rabbit/Cavvie Program is for youth from 5-19.
