The effect of level of dietary protein on growth and reproductive performance in rabbits



The effect of level of dietary protein on growth and reproductive performance in rabbits



Journal of Applied Rabbit Research 5(3): 83-88



From 7 months old until their 3rd litter was weaned, female rabbits received diets with equal energy, and protein 10, 14, 18, 22 or 26%. From weaning to 8 weeks old, the young got the same diet as the mother. Intake, daily gain of bodyweight and feed efficiency of the females were significantly greater with 18 than with 10 or 14% protein, and gain and efficiency were slightly greater with 18 than with 22 or 26% protein. Intake was greatest with 22 or 26%.
