3. Kandang battery; cage similar line where one cage to a head with the construction Flatdech Battery (park), Tier Battery (stratified), Pyramidal Battery (bucket pyramid).
Equipment enclosure that is needed is a food and drink that shatter-resistant and easy to clean.
2. Seedling
Depending on the requirements for cattle from the main rabbit breeding is. For the purpose of the type of the type of Angora wool, American Chinchilla and Rex is a suitable livestock. Are for the purpose of the type of Belgian meat, Californian, Flemish Giant, Havana, Himalayan and New Zealand is a match that kept cattle.
1. Seed selection and potential parent
When the farm aims to meat, choose the type of rabbit body weight and high perdagingan with good, whereas for the purpose of fur clearly choose seeds that have the genetic potential of growth is good wool. Specifically to the nature of both must have high fertility, is not easily nervous, not disabled, and the net terawat, wool does not faint, lincah / active move.
2. The seed treatment and prospective parent
Determine the quality of care seed parent who is also good, because treatment is the main concern is the need to feed enough, and the pen of good sanitation and prevent the enclosure from outside interference.
3. System Pemuliabiakan
To get the seed of a better and maintain the specific nature of the ground divided into 3 categories, namely:
1. In Breeding (in cross), to maintain and show specific nature such as wool, meat proportion.
2. Cross Breeding (cross outside), to get better offspring / add attributes superior.
3. Pure Line Breeding (cross between murai seeds), for a nation / species are expected to have a new look which is a
2 benefits of seed mix.
4. Reproduction and Marriage
Doe when it is integrated immediately reached adulthood at the age of 5 months (female and male). When the subject is too young and health child mortality is high. Pejantan when the first spouse, should kawinkan with a female who have been childless. Kawin time morning / afternoon

2. Gambaran Peluang Agribusiness
Increased nutrient movement that proclaimed government, especially coming from the animal protein still has not been fulfilled. We still needs a lot of meat to be imported from. Cony that have advantages in developing rapid, high quality meat, easy maintenance and low production costs make livestock this potential to be developed.
