When thinking of the Farm Show cows, pigs and sheep come to mind, but there are other furry friends that get a lot of attention, rabbits.
In Pennsylvania, rabbits are considered a commodity.
“Rabbits are raised for their meat, for their pelt, or for their wool,” says Scott Schmittle, a volunteer at the rabbit hop competition.
On Sunday, the rabbit hop competition took place at the 100th Pennsylvania Farm Show.
Six trained rabbits hop down a row of obstacles, racing for first place.
Abc27’s Dan Tomaso and Karissa Shatzer took part in this year’s competition and so did Representative Patty Kim (D-Dauphin), who won first place and a scarf made of rabbit hair.
The rabbits will be in the East Hall at the Farm Show until next weekend.
