This project is fundamental for our food self-sufficiency.We started with the laying birds that can be sold out as meat even though at lesser price.
To be profitable in the rabbit farming business, we have to minimize the costs and the mortality rate, as well as optimize the target weight of the rabbits. Yes, rabbit farming is highly profitable because it yields massive returns. Another reason why animal farming is profitable is that nothing goes to waste in the business including the urine and the feces of the rabbits.we used these wastes behind the education center where there is a banana plantation as manures.
On certain occasions like Sundays we slaughtered some of these animals /birds for the children and served them a nutritious meal to pay for their work in helping with the cleaning, feeding , providing the livestock with quality water and drugs. They always did these activities in their free time from school and also during school holidays, these taught them a lot on how to be hardworking and what self sustainability is!
