4 good reasons to grow rabbits for meat
Growing domestic rabbits for meat is coming back into popularity for a lot of good reasons:
1It is a healthy, low-fat, lowcholesterol meat that is easy to cook. The basic rule: replace chicken with rabbit in a recipe.
2Rabbits need minimal space in a garden and you don’t need to buy any expensive equipment so it’s not a lot of cash to outlay to get started. Kathy has 15 years of experience
in breeding rabbits. She’s owned and bred black
and red eye white Flemish Giants, but is now breeding
New Zealand Whites, and Satins where
her quest is to breed a rainbow litter. Her fascination
is with genetics, nutrition, health and welfare
of meat and pelt breeds of rabbit, and the challenge
of improving the breeds. Her wish: to
see the rabbit meat and pelt industry up and running
again in NZ.
