rabbit raising As the prices of food, especially meat products, continue to strike high, other options are being made available to consumers.

In 2020, the Department of Agriculture acknowledged rabbit meat as a potential alternative to pork. Hence, this can be another income-generating venture for backyard farmers in the country.

Rabbits are relatively easy to raise as they propagate quickly and aren’t costly when it comes to food. They only consume plant-based food and don’t require the growth hormones or antibiotics prevalent in the poultry industry.

The reproduction capacity of rabbits is very high and they can begin breeding at 5-6 months old. One doe or female rabbit can produce 134 kits in 13 months. If managed properly, rabbit farming can be extremely profitable as it requires low initial investment. (news.abs-cbn.com/ancx and agriculture.com.ph)
