New Rabbit Weights For 2018 Fair
Market rabbit weights are changing for fair. It's not of significant importance for the state fair, our rabbits don't go to auction, but if yours are, it's likely your processors are looking for larger rabbits... Here is the change we're making... it's1/2 pound increase on both sides and an extra 11 days, although the days should not be necessary in most venues.
