    Just to add, Evans Software is in the $69 - $89 price range, and IS one of the standard software programs used by MANY rabbit breeders.

    http://evans-software.com/

    They also have many other breeding programs available, cavy, pigeon, chinchilla, bird, sugar gliders, hamster, mouse/rat, fox, poultry, ferret... check them out. Easy to install, easy to use, easy to upgrade/update, easy to get support. IMHO :) :D

    For those of you that don't know yet.....Damar's rabbit supply is apparently out of bussiness. I am not sure when they discontinued, but I believe it has been a while now. I was very disapointed early this year when I got back into rabbits and found out they were no longer around. I had purchased a lot of wire form them over the years.

    We have and use the My Animal Manager and it works very well with breeding rabbits. We use it for our goats and chickens too.


    http://www.homesteadapps.com/app/free/forms/
    Lots of useful forms -- The people designing these forms obviously have some animals. Most of these forms can be used as input sheets for the animal manager software. The forms are free.

    Angora Rabbits in France:

    http://filangora-production.com/fr/video.php

    This is a video put out by the French angora industry. If you speak French, it's easy peasy, but otherwise...just watch the video all the way through. Beginning is a board meeting, but sit through it. they then take you into a huge facility for raising angoras for fiber (it's still one of the largest industries in France, even tho China has taken over in the world market). Raised on solid floors, with straw as bedding, fed hay and a pelleted diet.

    They also show how it's harvested there (they use a plant-based chemical that causes a full shed 3 days later...don't worry, it's a climate controlled facility, and in really cold weather they leave the wool on the tender backbone area. From what I've been able to find, the rabbits don't have any problems with this method of harvesting the wool)

    You'll also see glimpses of smaller operations (think home farm) where the rabbits are outside every day (weather permitting) in a fenced area, on a straw pile.

    There is also a nice history page of the Angora, and a "products" page.
