DA promotes production of rabbit meat in the Cordillera
by Press release

The Department of Agriculture-Cordillera Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance Division (AMAD) oriented stakeholders on rabbit production promote rabbit meat as a healthier alternative to poultry and pork.

The DA-AMAD conducted the Agribusiness Support for Promotion and Investment in Regional Exposition (Aspire) on Sept. 9 and10 among rabbit raisers.

Aspire is an agribusiness and marketing program that aims at integrating market development support services to farmers; fisherfolk; and micro, small and medium enterprises, among other stakeholders.

Thirty-two rabbit raisers from various parts of Benguet attended the activity focused on rabbit production.

Albert Callisen, owner of Aedean Rabbitry and a certified rabbit raiser for a decade now, oriented the participants on the basics of backyard rabbit meat raising, rabbit production uses and benefits, rabbit diseases and control, and rabbit production return on investment.

Callisen said among the benefits of rabbit production is the cheaper cost, rapid growth rate, high productivity, and production of highly nutritious meat.

He also demonstrated the proper method of slaughtering a rabbit.

Benguet State University Director for Business Affairs Norma Banania, Department of Entrepreneurship Chair Jeftee Ben Pinos-an, and Harriette Santos briefed the participants on entrepreneurial mind setting and business development and marketing.

AMAD Supervising Agriculturist Jerry Damoyan said after the event, they expect the participants to invest on rabbit production and contribute to quality and quantity produce in the region.

Elena Minong, an organic farmer from Itogon, said she attended the event to gain more knowledge on the potentials of rabbit production.

Rabbit meat is said to be a good source of protein and a potential replacement of poultry or pork meat.

DA-Cordillera is encouraging the production and consumption of rabbit meat in the region for healthier consumers and more profitable farmers.
