Rabbit breeding as a branch of the economy appeared in our region back in the 1920s. By the end of 1923, there were two communes in the Tyumen region. During the third five-year plan (1937-1941), there were 13 rabbit farms in the Tyumen region alone.
The importance of rabbit breeding for the Tyumen region was especially highlighted in the second half of the twentieth century. The products of this production are fur and meat. Rabbit meat has good taste and culinary properties, is easily digested and is considered dietary. Rabbit meat is recommended for people suffering from cardiological diseases, hypertension, obesity, diseases of the stomach, liver and intestines, atherosclerosis and anemia. It is especially important to use rabbit meat for residents of the city and towns of the North. Rabbits were bred at this time mainly on private farmsteads.
Rabbit breeding was developed in the mid-1990s in the farms of the Tyumen region. Each of the farms had its own specialization: milk – "Chervishevskoye", "Lugovskoye", "Uspenskoye", "Kaskara", "Topolya"; vegetables – "Embaevskoye", "Perevalovskoye" and "Malkovskoye", "Kaskara"; potatoes – "Borkovskoye", "Kaskara", "Turinskaya"; eggs and poultry meat – poultry farms "Borovskaya", "Pyshminskaya", "Tyumen broiler", rabbit meat – "Roshchinskoe".
