  3. The exhibitor can purchase or raise their meat pen rabbits. The rabbits must be owned and cared for at the exhibitor’s residence from the day of validation to the day of the show.
  4. The market rabbits (meat pen) must be tattooed on the 2nd Tuesday of April (subject to change) with the official Dayton FFA Livestock Show tattoo to be eligible to show.  Rabbits should be tattooed with personal identification in the left ear prior to arriving for the official Dayton Show tattoo.  Either an Agriscience teacher or 4-H rabbit leader must supervise tattooing.

There will be a weight tolerance of 0.05 pound.
