West Unity Native Takes Rabbit Project To Ohio State Fair

Bryant State Fair Meat Pen Award WEBBryant Miller of West Unity took his rabbit project to The Ohio State Fair.

Bryant placed 3rd out of 87 with his meat pen in the market show, 1st place in Breed Identification and Overall High Score, and 1st Place In Skillathon and Overall High Score. He also won Best In Show in the Open Show on Saturday and the 4-H Show on Sunday.

Although rabbit projects do not get to go through the Sale of Champions, The Ohio Market Rabbit Producers Association (OMRPA)was formed in 2013. This group through collaboration with the Ohio State Fair Board initiated a barn sale for rabbits in order to promote market rabbits and recognize the youth rabbit breeders in Ohio. Throughout the year they raise money through donations and obtaining sponsors to support the barn auction. This year market projects through 30th place realized cash awards due to their hard work. The Grand Champion Market Rabbit pen of 3 went for $6000.00 and the Reserve Champion Pen went for $4000.00. For more information about the OMRPA please visithttp://omrpa.com/Home_Page.html. This is a great organization that works to support the 4-H and FFA youth of Ohio.
