Do you know that rabbits can also be a good source of additional income? Yes, these furry pets can actually be sold and supply you with money. If you know all these then you might think to make money by starting a rabbit farm.
HOW TO START RABBIT FARMING
You can get started, without the costly items the so-called experts say you should have, with N25,000 one can kick-off with one male and four females depending on the age, weight and specie. They are reared in cages with galvanised wire mesh floor which costs N16,000to N20,000, therefore with N45,000 one is already in business.
Get started with a good foundation stock. Beware of fly-by-night sellers and find a reputable breeder to get your rabbits. A good foundation can make a huge difference in your production. And always be skeptical of the seller. Physically inspect the parents as they are an indication of what the offspring will become.
A good way to start small is by getting 1 buck and 1 to 2 does. This will allow you to start your breeding on a small scale and learn the basics. Later you may want to add another buck from a different line (this has both advantages and disadvantages) and a few more does. You will then be able to keep the best quality young and breed them order to maintain optimal results. Having 2 bucks also protects your breeding program if one of your bucks dies; giving you time to raise another while still using your remaining bucks for breeding.
Just be sure that if you are just starting out, start small. Making mistakes on a small scale is much better than making them on a large scale. As you learn the ropes, grow your rabbitry. And no matter how much you study on the subject, you will always be making improvements.
Also, make sure you are getting your information from qualified producers. Everyone is willing to give free information, whether accurate or not. And especially with the Internet, anyone can claim to be an expert while sitting behind the keyboard. Unfortunately even many veterinarians are lacking correct information on raising rabbits and may give inaccurate advice to their clients. When finding a vet, make sure they know and understand rabbits. And ask people who have the same goals as you. Raising a rabbit for show is completely different than raising a rabbit for meat production. And even those raising rabbits for meat production vary dramatically from the casual breeder who is more interested in the hobby of raising rabbits to the serious breeder who is trying to maximize their results and get the most meat out of every penny spent, while maintaining good, healthy lives for their rabbits. Find those who have been raising rabbits and learned through experience and association with others in the business. Getting correct information at the beginning of your endeavor will save money, headaches and time. It can make all the difference between a very rewarding experience and a less-than-optimal experience.
After they are born, many recommend rebreeding the does after 2 to 3 weeks. If bred 2 weeks after kindling, wean the young at 4 weeks.
Does will reduce milk production at 3 weeks we use this aggressive (and expert supported) technique and breed the does 2 to 3 weeks after kindling (depending on the condition of the doe). With this breeding program we then wean at 4 weeks. This breeding schedule is between 7 to 8 litters a year. The schedule you'll follow is something you'll need to decide for yourself.
However quickly you rebreed your does after kindling will obviously determine how many litters a year you get. The following shows the number of litters per year you'll get based upon how quickly you breed after kindling:
• 42 days after kindle = 5 litters/year
• 35 days after kindle = 5.5 litters/year
• 28 days after kindle = 6 litters/year
After the rains there is usually an abundance of wild herbs and weeds that rabbits will enjoy but ensure at all times that your rabbits have a varied diet of roughage and greens.
Concentrates (rabbit pellets or rabbit mash) should be fed twice a day as follows:
* 0 - 16th week after weaning give 65 - 100 g/day
* Pregnant does give 225 g/day/doe
* Active Buck give 90 - 100 g/day
