BATON ROUGE, LA - On April 14, youth from across the state gathered at the Maurice A. Edmond Livestock Show Arena in Baker for the annual State and National Rabbit Show, hosted by Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center. Family and friends were in attendance to lend support. Buyers were there to take home excellent breeding stock.

The Rabbit Show is a gathering of all kinds of rabbit breeds and colors, with children as young as four years old working with siblings to produce a grand family affair.

The SU Ag Center’s Rabbit Show is the largest in the state with competitions in 16 sanctioned rabbit breeds. Participants are school-aged youth who represent Future Farmers of America (FFA) chapters, 4-H Clubs, and other youth groups.
