The Raising Rabbits project provided a dietary protein source as a replacement for the protein usually provided from sheep and beef.
The project was divided into stages:
1) rabbit’s health care 3) breeding and production
2) insemination and mating 4) Selling rabbits for a cheap price.
These steps allowed families to buy rabbits, raise them, then eat them. This project was one of the most significant projects carried out by IHR as the rabbits, unlike other animals, have short pregnancy durations and large births number.
