OBJECTIVE: The purpose of the 4-H Rabbit project is to familiarize the 4-H member with the principles of feeding, breeding and management of rabbits. Boys and girls can find some phase of rabbit raising which will stimulate and keep their interest. With good management, rabbits offer a pleasant 4-H project and an opportunity for modest financial profit. The rabbit manual gives good guidelines for the project; however, if you own only one rabbit, or can only buy one rabbit, you can still take the project.
