Voluntary intake and dry matter digestibility of green fodders and tree leaves in New Zealand White rabbits



Voluntary intake and dry matter digestibility of green fodders and tree leaves in New Zealand White rabbits



Cheiron 18(6): 223-225



The green fodders: Cynodon dactylon, preflowering oat, Trifolium alexandrinum, Morus alba leaves and Grewia optiva was fed to adult New Zealand White rabbits for 3 weeks with 6 day collection periods. The mean DM intake was 2.67+or-0.42, 5.90+or-0.46, 4.82+or-0.31, 4.87+or-0.46 and 7.02+or-0.19 g per 100 g body weight and DM digestibility was 49.25+or-1.97, 57.35+or-3.06, 66.41+or-1.92, 60.98+or-3.17 and 46.36+or-2.21% respectively.
