What are the best meat rabbit breeds?

I want to raise rabbits for their meat.


Answer by  worker35 (20)

There are generally two breeds that are good for meat, the Florida White and the New Zealand. It is best to use rabbits with white fur, thus the Florida Whites, so that if there is a bit of hair that gets stuck to the meat it is not as apparent.

The best meat rabbit breeds are: Californian weighing 10 to 12 lbs Cinnamon weighing 9 to 11 lbs American Chinchilla weighing 9 to 11 lbs Creme d'Argent weighing 9 to 11 lbs French Lop weighing 11 to 16 lbs Hotot weighing 9 to 11 lbs New Zealand weighing 9 to 12 lbs Palomino weighing 9 to 12 lbs

Rabbits are divided into categories, those being "Fryers", "Roasters", and "Stewers". The best rabbit meat would be "mixed breeds". Some excellent choices would be the Californian, Cinnamon, French Lop and Silver Fox.

One good breed of rabbit for meat is the Flemish Giant. This breed is ready for butcher at 3 months providing a very tender meat.

The best meat rabbits are either Californian or New Zealand. If you obtain an American Rabbit Breeder's standard book it will give you all the possible breeds.
