A note on the critical temperature of sucking rabbits



A note on the critical temperature of sucking rabbits



Animal Production 49(2): 333-334



Five hundred and fifty sucking New Zealand rabbits of three ages (1, 10 and 20 days) were used to measure metabolizable energy intake and heat production at five ambient temperatures varying between 12 and 36.degree.C according to age. Critical temperatures and rate of heat production below them, decreased with age (32, 28 and 24.degree.C; 20.8, 10.8 and 9.2 kJ/kg0.75 per day and .degree.C at 1, 10 and 20 days of age respectively) as a result of the increase in thermal insulation. Energy retention also decreased below critical temperature at a similar rate to the increase of heat production, because rabbits could not increase their milk intake to meet their higher energy requirements.
