The Fair Recording Module on RabWay is designed to collect information on growth weight performance and feed rations used on your rabbits.

It will assist you to decide on changes in the management of your pen as required. This will optimize your chances of being well-placed on the day of judging... 

Your individual results will not be shared with anyone else... We will analyse the performance of all pens to help us breed better animals and identify the best nutrition for achieving champions...

The overall results will be provided to all users after the fair is completed who have registered on RabWay and participated in the recording of their pens ...

Changing Ounces into Tenths of a Pound (or metric format)

Know that there are 16 ounces to a pound.

Ignore the pounds for a moment.

Take the number of ounces and divide by 16.

Add that decimal to the whole number that represents the pounds.

Example: You start with 7 pounds, 2 ounces. Divide the 2 by 16 to get 0.125, then add the 7 to obtain the final answer of 7.125 pounds.
