BOURBONNAIS, Ill. — Raising rabbits is one of the simplest things you can do on your homestead. Not only do they require little attention, but they also provide a great amount of meat. Domestic rabbits are highly valued for their low fat, low cholesterol, and high quality proteins. They are entirely white meat. Rabbit compares very favorably to chicken, turkey, and some fish for its beneficial health virtues and its adaptability.
What type of information will be given?
- Breeds that give the best meat
- Feeding meat rabbits
- Basic health needs
- Proper bedding
- Preparing for butchering
