I do apologize for not being on the board more latley but with spring here there is much work that need done and I just dont have much time. To clarify why this board is here and what it is about: I started in to meat rabbits a few years ago and honestly did not have much knowledge on the meat rabbit industry. I joined any and all rabbit groups wanting to learn as much as I could. Some boards were deffinatley "pet boards" and did not look highly on the meat industy. Needless to say, these groups were not for me. Other boards "proclaimed" to be "meat rabbit" boards but so many times everything but rabbits were being discussed. Being a "newbie" I wanted info on rabbits not goats or what ever else they were discussing. When I complained about it I was kicked off the board. This is how this board came to exist. Since I could not find a good rabbit board I created my own. Originally it was hosted under another server but when countryside moved [now homesteading] I moved along with them. Any one that wants info on rabbits [for meat] is welcome to post here. I believe that even if you are raising rabbits for your own food source that would be "for profit" as this helps lower your grocery bill. Small scale producers are welcome as well as large producers. What I DONT want is my pet bunny did this kind of posts. There are many forums geared towards that. This is for meat rabbit production. I also want people to do their homework. There is tons of info online. I would recommend that any one interested in meat rabbits join the PRMA http://www.prma.org/ This board has always been one where little or know moderation needs to be done and I intend to keep it that way.
