Which breeds are best
There are many breeds of rabbits and of course any breed can be bred to produce meat for the family table. However there are several breeds that have been purposely bred to be more productive as meat rabbits as they grow fast and convert feed to protein quickly. These breeds include the New Zealand White, the Californian and the Rex. The New Zealand White grows to between 4-6 kg and the Californian grows to around 4.5kg. Both these breeds are predominantly white with pink eyes. I choose to keep Rex’s. Rex’s do not grow to the size of these other breeds but their velvet like coats make up for this. They also come in an assortment of colours. All these breeds can be found from breeders around the country.
Your worms’ activity will slow down over winter. Feed them less to avoid any bad smells. Cover the top level of your worm farm with an old piece of carpet to retain heat and moisture.
