Effect of dietary crude protein level on the reproductive performance and growth of New Zealand white rabbits



Effect of dietary crude protein level on the reproductive performance and growth of New Zealand white rabbits



Journal of Animal Science 60(4): 1029-1039



An experiment utilising 391 preweaning and 187 postweaning litter records from 145 female rabbits was conducted for 12 months. Dams and their litters were fed alfalfa-based pelleted diets containing 17.5, 19 or 20.5% crude protein. In a separate experiment, the 17.5 and 20.5% diets were fed during lactation to 10 females to determine nitrogen digestibility and retention.
