I'm looking for a couple of breeding does to start producing my own rabbit meat and fur. I've done lots of research and have found the NZ White Rabbit to be the best breed for this - apparently it is the main breed used for the meat industry. NZ Whites were originally bred in America.
I have been completely unable to find any rabbits locally. I live in Opotiki, which is near Whakatane and can travel as far as Tauranga or Gisborne or Rotorua to collect.
Does anyone know where I can find NZ White rabbits in the Bay of Plenty? I have scoured the internet, trademe, even called local butchers, searched for lab rabbits (they use the same breed) - all to no avail.
Surivalists must surely know who is breeding these for their own meat and fur?
