Broiler Rabbit farming in India

Organized promotion of rabbit production in India took place during the late seventies by the import of rabbits from the UK and the former USSR , by the Central Sheep and Wool Research Institute of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research. In India , rabbit rearing has attracted farmers since the last ten to 12 years. The ever growing demand for non vegetarian proteins in developing countries like India helps the rabbit industry to grow further and further.  Though it has not made an impact in the meat industry in India , there is tremendous scope for popularizing rabbit meat. In India , the production of rabbit meat had not reached any marked stage. Tamil Nadu is the premier state in rabbit farming in India . The breeds mainly reared in India are crosses of New Zealand White, Soviet chinchilla and Dutch crosses.
