E-mail Terry Grubb with your Commercial Department questions.

Commercial activities include: fertilizer, fur, lab, meat, novelties, pet, pharmaceuticals, wool, and worm production. The department is responsible for gathering and disseminating information on producers and buyers engaged in all commercial aspects, encouraging humane methods in all commercial operations and developing ideas to assist members with commercial projects, such as pamphlets, posters, ads, coupons, packaging and other related topics.

When "commercial" rabbit ventures are mentioned, the first to come to mind is usually the production of rabbits for meat. Many of these commercial meat facilities raise fryers for marketing directly to a processor. Often, rabbits are transported from the local area to processors in other parts of the country. This is accomplished by transporters (or haulers) covering an established route and run on a regular basis such as every two or three weeks. The ARBA "Market Report" below is a listing of many processors and is frequently updated to provide price and weight requirements. Contact processors/haulers directly to determine if there are established routes in your area to their facility.
