Effect of two levels of dietary protein on wool characters in Angora rabbits

Effect of two levels of dietary protein on wool characters in Angora rabbits

Investigaciones del Departamento de Produccion Animal, 1981-1982: 192-195

44 Angora rabbits in Chile were fed diets containing 19 or 13% protein and were shorn in summer or in autumn. For rabbits fed the 2 diets and shorn in summer, fibre diameter averaged 14.49 and 14.29 micro m resp. vs. 13.40 and 13.92 micro m for those shorn in autumn, the difference between seasons being significant for rabbits fed 19% protein. Fibre length averaged 6.03 and 6.30 cm vs. 5.55 and 5.77 (P<0.05).
