Why is the rabbit meat in short supply?

A large number of other processors bought rabbits from independent growers. Most of these were small back yard growers producing a lot of pet/show rejects.

What has Dean's Rabbits done to keep prices low

As the price of feed went up we increased our price of rabbit meat enough to cover it. At this same time we had added new rabbits to our herd. These extra rabbits made it very difficult to know our exact cost. When our bookkeeping program showed our research working better than we thought. we lowered prices to help keep rabbit meat price in line where it should be.

Why are meat rabbits in short supply around Thanksgiving and Christmas? This is the time people want to enjoy special dinners with their friends and family.

Breeder rabbits that produce the kits are bred in Hot weather of July, August, and September. During the period of June thru September, Males go sterile or semi-sterile when sustained 5 days or more of temperatures over 80 degree. The females have half size litters of 2, 3, or 5 instead of 8, 9, or 10. or have no kits. The rabbits sold October, November, and December are all bred during the hot summer months. With all our efforts the supply of rabbits is about 1/3 of normal sopply. Normal liters are just beginning to grow to market size for the small cut up rabbits, the whole rabbits take up to an extra 5 weeks to make weight.
