rabitttttttRabbit farming business in Nigeria can be a very profitable business for any entrepreneur who is knowledgeable in animal husbandry.  Unlike other livestock farming, rabbit business is a low capital investment as it does not require too much money to start up. However, it requires in depth knowledge of the animals, how to raise them and which customers to market to.rabbitEvery part of the rabbit is useful; the skin for leather shoe and bag making factories, furs for manufacturing clothes, bone for the production of livestock feed , meat for consumption, live rabbits for testing specimens by laboratories. So it is in the hands of the potential rabbit breeder to determine to whom he should sell his rabbits. Hence the target market is high, Do you want to start rabbit farming business in Nigeria? Then, here are basic factors to consider if success is to be attained.Rabbit-farm-007Production – Rabbits are polygamous in nature and multiply rapidly. Rabbits start breeding at 4 to 5 months of age. The gestation period for the doe (female rabbit) is 31 days and they give birth to 6 to 10 kits (baby rabbit) at once. Rabbits are able to reproduce seven times a year. For reproduction to take place, the buck and doe be kept together to mate. After which they should be keep in separate cages of houses. One female rabbit can produce up to 50 baby rabbits in a year. rabittyHousing – Rabbits can be kept cages, hutches or in a house. Whatever is the case, their living quarters should be spacious so that there will be enough room for their feeders, drinkers, the kits and for the expansion of the business. Their housing should protect them heat and humidity. It should not be too hot or too cold for them. Feeding – Rabbits eat processed feed or edible vegetable, leaves, shrubs, and herbs.  They also grasses such as elephant grass, potato, etc. I recommend that you feed them 2 times every day. rabbit_farming_equipment

If you feed them processed feed, then it is important that you find out the exact amount of feed they consume on a daily basis. This will help you avoid waste.  Adequate supply of drinking water should be provided for them too.Expenses – Rabbit farming business in Nigeria is not an expensive venture. You can start your farm in your backyard, with 2 male rabbits and 6 female rabbits, a wire cage and information from out rabbit farming manual. You are good to go! Other factors you will need to put into consideration includes a production plan, competition and marketing strategies. Because there are not so many people involved in commercial rabbit production, it is almost impossible for the few rabbit farmers to satisfy market demand. Therefore, once you set up your own rabbit farming business in Nigeria, you are already a silent millionaire. Look at it like this; since reproduction will take place on a monthly basis, you always have rabbits to sell.  rabiiihysndscndAnd because rabbits are scare, they are expensive so an adult rabbit can be sold form N10,000.

    Do you want to start Rabbit Farming business? Then here are few points which you may need to consider:

    Rabbit farming is not at all an expensive venture. It doesn’t need much money like every other farming does. Rather it takes a lot of knowledge about the animal husbandry and how best to raise animals. You should start with a profitable rabbit farming business plan to gain high profit in short term.

    How to Start Rabbit Farming Business

    Taking in consideration, the availability of breeding materials. To start investing in rabbit farming business, it is very much needed to know how to acquire your materials at a very low cost. The materials which are included are rabbit breeding cages, feeds, and concentrates, water nipples for rabbit drinking purpose, etc. are considered as the raw materials that are needed for the business.

    Get the basic knowledge about rabbit care. It is very important to avoid unwanted loss due to diseases and high mortality. Know every necessary thing about rabbits, from their illnesses to their gestation period, feeding pattern and common diseases.

    Get a rabbit farming business plan. The most important thing especially when you are going for a breeding on a commercial scale.

    Your Rabbit House:The cages should be well constructed and placed where it gets protected from the rainfall and direct sunlight.

    Feeding the rabbits: pellet Rabbit’s feed or grasses, shrubs, and herbs etc. They eat food at least twice a day. Fresh water should be given for 24 hours a day and all the containers should be cleaned on regular basis for the sake of health.

    Production:They start breeding from the month of 4 and give around 2-10 kits at once. The gestation period for a female is nearly 31 days. One rabbit can even turn around 40-60 kits at the end of a year. So, there will be rapid growth in the kits all around the year.
