This is a Sticky thread, meaning that it is always at the top of its forum where it can be easily located. It is expected that Sticky threads will be revived now and then.
Your other post here: post285141.html#p285141 would have been better posted as its own thread, so that members would be concentrating on your particular problem, rather than the rest of someone else's thread. That thread was over a year old; however, we did get an update on the bunny involved, since you posted in it. If not for that, I'd have split your post off into its own thread, and sent you a link to it. It's just a better way to get answers. Not that old threads are not useful -- far from it! Much knowledge can be gained from reading old threads. New problems, though, need to be posted in new threads, so they get the attention they need.
Welcome to RabbitTalk!
We are right to take alarm at the first experiment upon our liberties.

I got the impression from your application that you are in Ontario, perhaps up Ottawa way. If so, there is a company called Homestead Organics that has a grain-based rabbit grower. They do rely on soybeans, but they would be non-GMO.
A grower ration for rabbits containing wheat, oats, barley, roasted soybeans, flax
meal, peas, minerals and salt. Farmers should provide their own forage or purchase
I no longer have rabbits due to mobility issues, but I fed mine on a good alfalfa/grass hay, small amounts of whole grain, and as much fresh food (mostly weeds and branches from safe trees) as the season allowed. They also had a trace mineral salt block. They took a bit longer to grow to butchering size, but there was no excess fat on the carcasses and the meat tasted great. My cost was about half that of raising them on pellets. If you have some land and can gather forage, this is a great way to go and there's lots of information in the Natural Feeding for Rabbits forum.
