Rabbit Exhibitors – Read this to prepare for Skillathon!

2023 Skillathons will include 4 stations – Project Interview, Breeds, Parts, and Feed Identification. All information on breeds, parts, and feeds is available in your 4-H Rabbit Resource Book.

FFA Exhibitors are encouraged to check with their FFA Chapter to see if Skillathon or 4-H Resource Books are available to study as many chapters do have these items as classroom resources. If not, 4-H Resource Books are available for purchase from the OSU Extension Office year round and can be used multiple years by all family members.

Project Record Books for 4-H and FFA should be for the CURRENT project year and as up to date as possible on Skillathon day. Project Books will be reviewed on Skillathon days. They will be returned to you at the fair during your specie’s show.

4-H Rabbit Exhibitors: With the revision of the 4-H Rabbit Project and Record book, there is now a required online component.  This component, or focus questions, is accessible at go.osu.edu/4hrabbitresources.  Each year will have its own unique topics of interest, medication label, and treatment record scenario.  Attached please find 2023 Rabbit Focus Questions.  Please use these when completing your Rabbit Project and Record Book.

Additionally, with limited resources in the 4-H Rabbit Resource Book regarding feed identification, we have prepared this document to help you study: Rabbit Feed Identification One Sheet These are all ingredients commonly found in rabbit feed even though may often feed a form of pellet to your rabbits.
