Crossing of New Zealand White and Californian rabbits. 2. Carcass and meat characters



Crossing of New Zealand White and Californian rabbits. 2. Carcass and meat characters



Annali dell' Istituto Sperimentale per la Zootecnia 19(2): 67-84



84 rabbits of 2 breeds (New Zealand White and Californian) and 10 crosses involving these breeds and the Burgundy Fawn, Flemish Giant, Champagne Silvery and Blue Vienna breeds were slaughtered. Live weight at slaughter and 29 carcass and meat characters were recorded. Least-squares means are given for sire and dam breeds, sexes, and the sire breed x dam breed interactions. In general, crossing signficantly improved carcass quality without decreasing meat yield.
