This particular pre-feasibility provides the basic information for setting up a ‘Rabbit Farming’ business in favorable rural or peri-urban areas of Pakistan. Rabbits are characterized with fast growth rate, high fecundity, high feed conversion efficiency, and early maturity. With good husbandry practices, a female rabbit can produce upto 35 kits per annum. The market for rabbit farm in Pakistan has been growing in recent years.

Green leafy vegetables, seasonal vegetable, spinach greens, carrots, Muller, cucumber, green grass and vegetable waste can easily be used as the food of rabbit. For the commercial purpose, concentrated feed can be used to feed the rabbits.

The proposed farm will start production with 200 breeding females and 50 breeding males. The overall farm size at this capacity would be around 3,050 rabbits including young male and female bunnies. The number of adult breeding females has been kept limited because very large herd would be difficult to manage. This capacity is estimated to be economically viable and justifies the capital as well as operational cost of the project. However, entrepreneur’s knowledge of livestock farming, selection of good breed, maintain disease free stock and location of the farm are the key success factors.

The total project cost is estimated at Rs. 12.589 million out of which Rs. 11.272 million is capital cost and Rs. 1.318 million is working capital. Considering all the assumptions on which the pre-feasibility has been made, the project generates an IRR, Payback and Net Present Value are 35%, 3.12 years and Rs. 11.281 million respectively as an equity financed business. The project will provide employment opportunities to 4 people including the Owner. The legal business status of this project is assumed to be ‘Sole Proprietorship.
