Talk About Cheap Energy: Horticulturist Bill Schultz Gets His B.t.u.s from Hot-Blooded Bunnies
The cost of rabbit power is nothing to twitch your nose at: Schultz's bunnies have enabled him to shave 12 percent off his $1,000-a-month fuel bill. But cheap energy is only one commercial use of the versatile rabbit, according to the former instructor in horticulture at L.A.'s Pierce College. "The rabbit is an all-purpose animal," Schultz rhapsodizes. "Two hundred rabbits will provide as much table meat as a thousand-pound steer. You can sell the fur for artificial fox and mink, the blood for medical testing and the innards for fertilizer. Not to mention the feet for good luck charms."
Every two weeks Schultz ships his surplus four-footed heaters off to market, where they bring him some $460 a month—and chagrined looks from his daughters. "The girls would like them sold as pets," he says. "On market day if a fryer doesn't make the minimum weight and is put back, the girls are apt to give out a loud cheer."
