Rabbit Banner


The rabbit project teaches proper methods of caring for, raising, breeding, and marketing rabbits. Youth participating in this project can choose to raise rabbits for market (breeding and raising rabbits for meat); breeding (breeding and raising rabbits for desired or unique characteristics); and pets (raising rabbits for companionship).  

Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunities for positive youth development in our four guiding concepts:  mastery, belonging, independence, and generosity.  This program fosters mastery by learning about caring for, raising, breeding, and marketing rabbits, belonging by interacting and connecting with adults and youth with similar interests, independence by demonstrating responsible rabbit ownership, and generosity by participating in community service and citizenship activities. Contact your county extension office for more information (link).
