Boone County 4-H Fair Information

American Rabbit Breeders Association - The place to start outside of 4H for information about rabbits.

  • Indiana State Fair - You can show your rabbits at the State Fair
  • KD Cage - The closest rabbit supply dealer based in New Castle, IN. They are also great supporters of the youth rabbit exhibitors in the state of Indiana.
  • Abate XP - removes ammonia and hydrogen sulfide. Great for controlling rabbit or poultry smells.
  • Morfz - great site to calculate dosages for rabbits and rabbit reference manuals. This is not a substitute for Vets, but very informative
  • Purina Feed - Quality feed for your rabbits. Support Kern, Kittley and Herr since they support the rabbit project.
  • Heinold Feed - Quality feed for your rabbits.
  • Kent Feed - Qaulity feed for your rabbits.

*In order to exhibit rabbits at the 2013 Boone County 4-H Fair, each 4-H member must complete the grade appropriate quiz that accompanies the rabbit resource manual.
