The third Annual Henry County 4-H Rabbit Workshop will be held Saturday Feb. 23, at the Menke Hoyer Auction Complex in New London. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. with the first event starting at 9 a.m. This family fun event is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and free to attend.
This year’s program will involve a variety of nationally recognized guest speakers, state and county fair judges, and local vets to answer rabbit care, breeding and showmanship questions. There will also be several vendors and breeders on hand displaying their products, services, and a variety of rabbit breeds.
Again this year will be offered a carrier workshop where participants can make their own carrier. There will also be a guinea pig (cavy) expert available. There will be a practice show starting at 1 p.m. where participants are encouraged to bring their rabbits and put them on the show table.
The day will conclude with the awarding of over 100 door prizes donated by local businesses.
