This is a fully updated edition of a highly successful book about the production of farmed rabbits (originally published by Interstate in 2000). The book concerns rabbits bred for meat and fur, but also has plenty of information on pet rabbits and show rabbits. Beginning with an introduction to the field of rabbit production around the world and some basic breed and equipment information, further topics then covered include rabbit diseases, feeding, reproduction, behaviour, welfare, genetics, showing, rabbit production in developing countries, fur and meat production, slaughter and the marketing of rabbit products.
Current areas of interest such as animal welfare and coat colour genetics are expanded in this new edition.
An important resource for all those involved in rabbit production, as well as the keen amateur rabbit enthusiast.
