This is a subject I've thought long and hard on for the past decade. I've tried many methods and types of meat production.. Rabbits, Chickens, Coturnix Quail, and soon to try goats n pot bellied pigs. Life being as it is I find myself in a new career in a new town with a little more land than I had before. I am outside of a large city, but the way I have set things up, even the rabbit hutches don't stand out and unless you walk within 50' of them you won't know they are there... Quail are great, but with no power and no solar capabilities as of yet they aren't sustainable enough for me as I have to incubate all eggs.. Rabbits and Chickens I love.. Rabbits for meat, fur and their ability to turn anything they eat into the best fertilizer around. Chickens.. They'll eat anything that won't get out of their way.. Plus the gals lay eggs.... See? I like the duplicity my critters bring me.... But new town, starting over.. Rabbits..... Here is my start over pics Now this is what most of my land looks like as of a week ago.. After yesterday.... Now the question is.. How do we maximize the use here? I left mature trees n all evergreen trees in the clearing we made. I want to use this for pasture for forage for rabbit tractors, goats, PBP's etc. Looking for ideas.. Planning on Clover, Vetch, Alfalfa, Timothy Hay and some Winter Wheat. Perhaps some Barley.. I've had enough rabbits to go through 100lbs of pellets a week, and I cut back by winter.. But by next spring/summer I plan on filling that field with critters. Any input would be appreciated!
