Experimental opossum farming in New Zealand



Experimental opossum farming in New Zealand



Proceedings, 3rd International Scientific Congress on Fur Animal Production, Versailles, 25-27 Apr 1984 (Paper 71): 4



Opossum farming has developed in the last 5 yr. Adult opossums weigh 3-4 kg and require approx. 60-80 g of vegetable pellets per day. The breeding season occurs in Feb.-Nov., with a possible break in June-July. Females are monovular and polyoestrous, with a cycle length of 25 days and a gestation period of 17 days.
