Meat Pen Information

What is a Meat Pen? – When I use the term meat pen I am referring to a pen of three rabbits which usually weigh between 3 and 5 pounds. Normally the rabbits are either Californian or New Zealand. A “meat pen” is one of the forms of competition, many times offered by an ARBA sanctioned show. When an exhibitor enters a meat pen into a show they usually are choosing their best three rabbits (approximately 70 days old), to be judged in a fryer competition (judging on ideal meat qualities). Although they are judged based upon meat characteristics the rabbits themselves are very rarely used for meat. Instead they are usually kept for breeding stock or sold at auction for competitive prices.

For a Complete Guide to Raising and Showing Meat Pen Rabbits be sure to grab a copy of: Raising Meat Pen Rabbits by Aaron Webster.

If you are looking to buy rabbits for meat or other purposes please check out our state breeder index or our breed index to find rabbit breeders in your area.

Wabbits and Wranglers Rabbitry
Specializing in Silver Fox Rabbits, originally bred in the USA for meat and for their exceptional coats. With their excellent dispositions, this breed is beginning to make a comeback from near extinction. Meat rabbits offer a healthy alternative for concerned individuals and families who don’t want to eat commercially produced meat (beef, pork, poultry) which have been fed GMO laden grains, unnecessary antibiotics and other growth producing drugs most of their lives. When you raise your own meat, you have control over what they eat. There are many reasons to raise Meat Pen rabbits. What’s yours? ARBA #STEWSH01
