and Raising Rabbits, Agricultural Information Bulletin No. 358. 1972. Funds to support the research for and production of the Alternative agriculture Series

NDSU Extension Service
Author: Randy Sell , Research Assistant,
Department of Agricultural Economics, NDSU Series Editor: Dwight Aakre , Farm Mangement Specialist,
NDSU Extension Service Rabbits are raised world-wide for a variety of reasons. In Europe and Asia they are an important source of food. Rabbits produce white meat that is fine-grained, high in protein, low in fat, highly palatable, low in cholesterol, and that can be substituted for poultry in most recipes. Rabbit carcasses are only 20 percent bone. In the United States rabbits are raised predominantly for nonfood purposes. High quality rabbit skins are used in fur garments and trimmings. Medical and cosmetic research also requires a large number of rabbits each year. Many people raise rabbits for show or as pets.
Breeds of rabbits
Rabbits are generally classified according to size, weight and type of pelt. Small rabbits weigh about 3-4 pounds at maturity, medium breeds 9-12 pounds, and large breeds 14-16 pounds. The two most popular breeds for meat production are the New Zealand and the Californian. These breeds are most popular because they combine white fur (preferred by processors) and good growth characteristics. New Zealand rabbits are slightly larger than the Californian, 9-13 pounds versus 8-10 pounds. The New Zealand rabbit has a completely white, red or black body, whereas the Californian is white with colored nose, ears and feet. The two most popular rabbits for fur production are the Rex and the American Chinchilla. The Rex is slightly smaller than the American Chinchilla, 7 pounds versus 10 pounds. Fur from the Rex rabbit is unique in that guard hairs and underfur are the same length. The markets for rabbit fur tend to be unstable, so be sure there is a sufficient demand to allow fur to be marketed in a reasonable amount of time.

The Eglu: A Chicken House for City Farmers.
"Fresh, great tasting food and a healthier lifestyle. Keeping chickens that lay delicious eggs is easy and fun. The Eglu is the world's most stylish and innovative chicken house and is the perfect way to keep chickens as pets. If you live in the middle of a city, in the suburbs or in the countryside, you can start living the good life." Posted April 14 2004
Livestock Keeping in Urban Areas
"Studies have revealed that more than 20 000 households in Bamako keep livestock in town, and thousands more people supply them with inputs or marketing services; over one-third of households surveyed in Harare keep livestock, mainly chickens but also rabbits, pigeons, ducks and turkeys. In Dar-es-Salaam urban farming is the second largest employer after petty trade and labour, and 74 percent of urban farmers keep livestock; and even in densely populated Cairo, 5 percent of households keep animals, especially chickens and pigeons.

A Taste of Urban Agriculture in Havana
"So much of the food I love in Canada and eat regularly is sold in American dollars in Cuba and is therefore inaccessible to many Cubans and hard to find for people who do have dollars. Cheese is gold, eggs are diamonds, buns and rice are my sustenance, rum is blood. I realize now in a deeper sense that food does not exist without the people or animals that grow it or gather it, or process it." Posted February 13, 2002

Index Home About Search for Google's copy of this article Index Home About Search for Google's copy of this article Newsgroups: sci.environment,sci.agriculture From: (Bruce Hamilton) Subject: DDT - A 1944 perspective Date: Tue, 16 Jul 1996 08:12:02 GMT [ Posted to both sci.agriculture and sci.environment, but followups set back to sci.environment ] Whilst scavenging around Chemical and Engineering News for an article, " DDT " popped out from an adjacent page. As I read it, I thought some of you might just appreciate some quotes. Please realise that we now have 50 years of experience, and that it's not a scientific paper. It is reporting on a meeting of the National Association of Insecticide and Disinfectant Manufacturers. Enjoy.... NADIM Holds 31st Annual Meeting Harry W.Stenerson, Industrial Chemical and Engineering News v.22 p.2179-2180 (December 25 1944) " Late in 1943 the Army was so anxious to obtain the powerful new insecticide for lice extermination that it flew overseas to a fighting front the first 500 pounds made in a pilot plant here. National production has now readed a monthly rate of 2,000,000 pounds, and insecticide manufacturers are eagerly seeking the means of marketing DDT to civilian consumers in formulations that are nontoxic, safe to use, and effective. .... Three of the major addresses' were devoted to the wartime insecticidal wonder. The toxicology of DDT was discussed by Paul A Neal, senior surgeon and chief of the Industrial Hygiene Laboratory, US Public Health Service, Bethesda. Md. ...... household and industrial insecticides containing DDT were the subject of a paper read by George W.Fiero, chief of the Pharmaceutical, Insecticide, and Cosmetic Unit, Office of Civilian Requirements, Washington. ... Dr Neal rendered a detailed report on experimental work with regard to the toxic effects of DDT on man and animals, the subject of greatest concern at this time to both manufacturer and consumer. In spite of its inherent toxicity , the use of DDT in a 1 to 5 % solution in 10% cyclohexanone with 89-85% aerosol should offer no serious health hazards he stated, when used under conditions as required for its use as an insecticide. ... The use of DDT in concentrations up to 10% in inert powders for dusting clothes ( in lice extermination ) appears to offer no serious hazards because of the relative insolubility of DDT and the large particle size of the dust. Therefore it did not reach the alveolar spaces. A large proportion of the dust is retained in the uppermost sections of the respiratory tract and the remainder is swallowed. The objective of the the investigation was the appraisal of health standards connected with the use of DDT as aerosol, mist, spray and dusting powder...In further tests, two human subjects were exposed to a dispersion of DDT in air prepared by dispersing every 15 minutes 10.4 grams of an aerosol containing 5% DDT, 10% cyclohexane, and 85% Freon in a sealed chamber of 14,750-liter capacity, for one hour daily, on six consecutive days. This test failed to show any subjective or objective manifestations referable to DDT. .... DDT production has skyrocketed from 60,000 pounds, in January 1994 to a current rate of approximately 2,000,000 pounds, Dr Fiero of the CCR told the meeting. The Armed Forces are using DDT rather extensively in malarial sections; hence, he thought, no cutbacks could be expected on V-E day. Entire islands in the war zone are being sprayed with DDT from airplanes. With the exception of small quantities for experimental work, all of the current production is being allocated to the Armed Forces. Fiero stated that preliminary research indicates that DDT, in addition to its effectiveness against body lice, should prove very valuable as a toxicant for household and industrial insecticides. It is apparently effective against roaches, fleas, bedbugs, mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers, ants and carpet beetles. Referring to the contention that DDT is fatal to beneficial insects, the speaker felt that this should not deter its use in nonagricultural insecticides unless it is found to be toxic to humans or pets.

New programs to boost production and employment
Puerto Rico’s agriculture sector has been declining since the start of the industri alization process in the 1950s. In recent years (1997-2001), agriculture’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) figures have notably decreased, except for the year 2000 when annual growth was positive (56.9%). From 1997 to 2002, the GDP of agriculture represented less than 1% of the Island’s total GDP.
