NOW that the current summer "1080" Rabbit Drive is drawing to a close, it is time we considered our future plans.
I am afraid that in the past most farmers have relied far too much on summer control as the complete answer to rabbit destruction and that this reliance has increased considerably following the introduction of "1080" poison, plus the valuable assistance received from the myxomatosis virus.
"Hit rabbits this winter : it will check breeding and give more valuable feed for summer grazing,"
