Abstract

Air humidity plays an important role in maintaining dried pelleted rabbit feed quality. High relative humidity of air in the equatorial climate will lead to the growth of fungus and mold on the pelleted rabbit feed. As consequence, high levels of rabbit deaths occured in Gold Rabbit Farm, Bintangor due to contaminated pelleted rabbit feed. The innovation of this project is related to the need for clean storage and relative humidity controller to maintain the quality of the pelleted rabbit feed. Thus, a dry food storage area is designed and fabricated by installing air dehumidifier. The storage space is airtight and large in size to accommodate a large quantity of food stocks and has the ability to maintain a low relative humidity air. The existence of this storage allows entrepreneurs to store more pellet feeds and reduce mortality due to food poisoning. As result, the cost of production decreases and profits increase with reduction of rabbit fatality.
