This was posted on HT, so I copied the link. Haven't read it, since it has no relevance to my rabbit venture.

Someone in another thread wanted information on Pennsylvania and I found this:

Farmer's Guide to Processing and Selling Meat or Poultry
http://extension.psu.edu/food-safety/en ... ultry/view

(Which doesn't say much about rabbits but does have a list of contact info.)

GEORGIA

I found this on the Georgia Agriculture Department's website:
http://agr.georgia.gov/Data/Sites/1/med ... e40101.pdf

There _appears_ to be an exemption for inspection for rabbits:

Page 7-8

40-10-1-.04 Exemptions. Amended.
1) Exemptions:
a) The requirements of the Act and the regulations in this chapter for inspection of the preparation of products do not apply to:
[...]
3. The slaughter and processing of rabbits by any person who raises rabbits for slaughter and processing for sale at wholesale and retail in numbers not to exceed 2500 rabbits per year.

Interesting!

Found these for Wisconsin.

Rabbit info scroll down to page 9.
http://www.uwex.edu/ces/agmarkets/publications/documents/MeatMarketingRegulationsinWisconsin.pdf

There's a map on this one, with zones for your part of the state, and phone numbers to contact for more information.

I plan on researching this myself. Would love to be able to make a profit or at least pay for feed by selling meat.

Found this...

hi there! I am in Oregon. My understanding is this:
you may not sell butchered meats unless you are USDA inspected.
you may sell live animals for the intent of the being butchered. you may also kill and dress the animal as a free service.
so the way to do it, again, as is my understanding, and how I do it. I advertise Meat Rabbits for sale. $4 per pound live weight. then when they email/call and they ask I say, well if you can't kill them yourself, I would be happy to either teach you or do it for you when I do mine. and no, no, thank you but I can't charge for that, it is a free service.

I never advertise anything the USDA people can bug me about, becasue I have been through that already with RAW goat milk. what a pain! and since I am very careful and clean and responsible. IMHO it shouldn't be a problem, but I don't push it to make sure

there are my 2cents hope that helps.

Any one in New Mexico know the regulations for this state? I've been looking a while and still haven't found it.
