Rabbits on track

The Ministry of Agriculture wants the rabbit husbandry to redesign their farming methods in order to fit the sustainable development.


The goal of this project is to contribute to an integrated sustainable development of the rabbit husbandry in the Netherlands, but also in an international perspective. Results show that among the progressive rabbit farmers, the Department Rabbit farming of LTO and other parties, a sense of urgency for a sustainable rabbit husbandry has arisen. A few rabbit farmers already started working with the information they obtained from this project to create a more sustainable rabbit husbandry. Programs of requirements and need-analysis provided an insight into the requirements an integrated sustainable system must meet. Expert sessions has shown to what extent the current and emerging systems fit the requirements for an integrated sustainable system.
