We have raised many different breeds over the years, including Palomino, Red New Zealand, Champagne D’ Argent, Flemish Giant, White New Zealand, Silver Fox, and Rex. We cross breed for hybrid vigor since we use all the rabbits for meat.
In 2017 we had our breeding buck and two breeding does die of different things within a couple of months of eachother. Since that was almost all of our breeding stock, and getting ourselves back up and producing was going to take several months, we decided to stop raising meat rabbits for the unforseeable future.
