Rabbit raising in the tropics
Echo technical note # b-1
Compiled by Martin L. Price, Director of ECHO
Some development workers in the third world are very enthusiastic about rabbit raising projects. Others are equally negative. Why do they have such different opinions? The following began when I wrote to Fremont Regier in Botswana and presented this perplexing question to him. Fremont had been mentioned to me a couple of times as a person who enthusiastically and successfully used rabbits in development projects.
This is not a treatise on all you need to know to raise rabbits in the tropics. Rather you should view it as a "conversation" with some experienced people about certain aspects of raising rabbits. This collection may be expanded in the future, so I welcome suggestions and ideas from your own experience, pro or con. When writing, specify whether I can (1) use your name and (2) identify your organization and country when quoting you.
