Effect of feeding intensity prior to parturition on postnatal growth in blue foxes (Alopex lagopus)


Norwegian Journal of Agricultural Sciences (Suppl. 9): 348-354
Effect of feeding intensity prior to parturition on postnatal growth in blue foxes (Alopex lagopus)
Influence of feeding intensity during gestation on lactation and cub growth was studied in blue fox. 93 nulliparous female blue fox were given low (LE) and high energy (HE) diets containing metabolizable energy 14.6 and 19.5 MJ/kg DM, respectively from day 35 of pregnancy. From day 3 postpartum both groups were fed on HE diets. Energy change at the beginning of the third trimester resulted in more rapid growth of cubs during lactation.
