South of 64: Meat Rabbits Photos by Julia Rendleman, Audio by Nadia Samie as part of the South of 64 Project, a Weekend in Murphysboro. Bob and Shirley Moore were born and raised in southern Illinois near Murphysboro. They met over 50 years ago after Bob ended his service with the Navy. They live on a small farm on 127 and raise lambs, cows, and rabbits. He sells the rabbits frozen and dressed for $6 each, or about $2 a pound. There aint no money in it (rabbit farming). I dont know why I do it for something to do I guess, Moore said. Bob, who is 75 years old, continues to work sun up to sun down- everyday in the fields and barns of his 60-acre farm. Moores wife of 45 years, Shirley, describes her husband as a workaholic. Hell never retire, she said.

Micro-rabbitry We decided to incorporate some meat rabbits into our homestead. It seems lots of people in our area are raising the novelty mini rabbit breeds, but not too many of the larger, Californian or New Zealand rabbits around. I finally located a litter of mixed breed meat-type rabbits near us, and bought two does from it. Here they are. Rabbit manure, by the way, is the only manure you can add "raw" or fresh to plants without danger of burning the plant. It's wonderful stuff and I am looking forward to having it for the garden. Due to the nature of this video, and the fact some people with differing opinions on the raising, slaughter, and consumption of meat can't seem to express their viewpoint politely and nicely, comments will be pre-approved. Oh, and sending me a nasty private message will just get you blocked. Life is too short.

Teaching the wife how to butcher rabbits Teaching my wife to process a rabbit. I agreed that the rabbits were my responsibility but I wanted her to try it at least once. She had never killed or cleaned any animal not even a fish. She did a great job.
The rabbits are mulitplying Everything is coming along nicely with the rabbits. We currently have 11 adults and a combined total of 33 kits. More litters are being born at an average of 2 weeks apart. This allows reuse of the nesting boxes as needed. I need 4 more. The only draw back has been the flies recently. Getting that under control better after a few days of the fly bait. Have to spray insect killer outside of the shed next and make some adjustments to the duck area to keep things drier. But that's another video. Any suggestions on fly control?

Breeding meat rabbits california / flemish giant / and new zealand crosses A quick vid of Henry ( white Buck ) and Stew ( grey Doe ) on a romantic date. Because I am learning by doing on my microfarm I eventually want to get into larger meat animals like sheep and goats but I have no experience. I figured starting small with chickens and rabbits I could learn as I go without a huge commitment. I will be letting the kids sell as many of these as they can and we will consume the rest. As much as I don't enjoy the day they go in the freezer, I try to look at it like cleaning a fresh fish that I caught. I really want to start eating better and become a little more self sufficient, plus rabbit is delicious.

Dirk's Rabbitry Here is my rabbitry. It was started on 8/23/11 in an attempt to have a reliable food supply on hand during uncertain times. It also can be used as a source of income by selling either rabbits for meat or for pets. I chose New Zealand and Dutch to enable either scenario to be achieved. I can produce large meat rabbits, medium meat rabbits or small pets depending on how I choose to breed. All rights activists comments will be deleted and they will be banned.
