Daniel began raising rabbits in the late 1980s as a 4-H project and has developed a line-bred genetic base for meat rabbits that are hardy and can eat forage without getting diarrhea. Housed in elevated shelters above the chickens in a custom-made building called the Raken (Rabbit-Chicken) house, the breeding stock receive unmedicated alfalfa pellets and hay or cut-and-carry fresh greens. In season, many of the bunnies are finished in portable, slatted-floored field shelters moved daily similar to the broilers.
