The Warrick County 4-H Rabbit Breeders Association was formed by Dennis Batts the winter of 2002. Dennis Batts led the club from 2002 to 2008. After Dennis stepped down as leader, Tammy Faulkner took over his role as leader. The purpose of our club is to support the 4-H youth in showing, breeding, and owning the domestic rabbit. We have many fun rabbit activities to take part in besides the rabbit show. These events include Caged Rabbit, Showmanship, Judging a Class of Rabbits, Rabbit Ambassador, Action Demonstrations, and Illustrated Talks. Besides from doing rabbit-related activities, our club also does many other fun activities, such as parties, volunteering, and doing fundraisers at various events. Our club has also helped our community. We have donated money to a church that was lost in a tornado in 2005. Our 4-H youth benefit from being members by learning the world of domestic rabbits for show, breeding, and the joy of owning the domestic rabbit.
Our club helped out the Feathers and Fur Rabbit Club put on their annual show this year. We sponsored a Holland Lop specialty and ran the concession stand. For many, this was their first ARBA rabbit show. Everyone seemed to have a great time and it was great experience for everyone to see how a ARBA rabbit show is held.
