Meat Rabbits

Trying to set up meat rabbit breeding for our own needs, and I'm having trouble locating a breeder of New Zealand Whites or similar in the area. Does anybody know of a someone who breeds meat rabbits anywhere between Albury and Bendigo? We regularly travel from one to the other so anyone along that area will be okay.

Hi Dreamchaser,

Welcome to the small farms forum, thanks for the question.

You will find it difficult to find a breeder of rabbits, particulalry on any sort of commercial scale. How many rabbits are you looking for?

The commercial rabbit industry is very much dead, below are a few previous posts that you can have a read of that provide an explanation

Apologies for not being of much assistance.

Regards,
Charlie

Thanks Charlie,

I'll take a look at those links, I'm trying to learn as much as possible so we can be better set up.

We're just looking at a buck and two does to breed for our own needs, just to supplement any lamb or chicken we manage to produce. Not looking at starting up a commercial farming operation, just want to do subsistence farming so our requirements are very small scale. That's why we were hoping to come across someone who had a few to sell.
