Rabbit...........the Ultimate White Meat! TM
We had over 350 breeding Does in our barns. That meant about 3500 rabbit mouths to feed every day. We raised the New Zealand White rabbits because they are noted for having excellent mothering skills and large litters. They are the large, pink eyed, white bodied meat rabbit that our customers and processors prefer. We also raised a cross breed of the New Zealand White
rabbits and the Altex rabbit. The Altex was originally developed by Dr. Steven Lukefahr,
graduate students and
associates in the Alabama A&M Universities - thus its’ name.The breed is noted for growing large, fast and
having a good meat
to bone ratio. The Altex was planned to be used as a terminal sire, but we have had excellent results raising females crossed with Altex and New Zealand, Californian or Giant Flemish for breeding stock. They acquire the best traits of both breeds providing us with hardy, large bodies,large litters and are excellent mothers. We have always believed that “mutts” are aquality to appreciate, just ask our farm dogs! We do still have some smaller, colored bunnies
for the pet industry. We recently sold our herd off and are dabbling
with semi- retirement. We kept a small number of rabbits on hand and will be breeding for meat sales on a small scale continuing
our home butchering and pet and reptile
feed sales. You will
find our prices competitive and our ability
to meet your demands of quality with uncommon professionalism.
