This week’s story from Cote d’Ivoire talks about raising and housing rabbits. Rabbits can be of great
value to the family and the community at large. They provide meat, a source of fertilizer, and other
products, and can be quickly sold for cash or turned into a nutritious meal when needed. With careful
attention, they are not difficult to raise and can be looked after by any member of the family.
In the concluding part of a two-part interview, a famous Nigerian rabbit farmer and retired agricultural
extension worker describes the most important things we must do to raise, feed and house rabbits well.
The script includes detailed instructions for building rabbit cages.
