Doe reproduction and preweaning litter performance of straightbred and crossbred rabbits



Doe reproduction and preweaning litter performance of straightbred and crossbred rabbits



Journal of Animal Science 57(5): 1090-1099



Reproductive characters in 430 matings of females of 4 genetic groups and preweaning performance of 280 litters were evaluated in a 15-month study. The females were New Zealand White (NZW) and Californian purebreds and Californian x NZW and NZW x Californian crossbreds. Dams and litters were fed a commercial control or a 74% alfalfa pelleted diet. Litters were sired by NZW, Californian and Flemish Giant (FG) purebred males.
