Zootechnical parameters in the breeding of captive hares

, : Zootechnical parameters in the breeding of captive hares. Rivista di Coniglicoltura 30(7-8): 33-37

Data were recorded in 1990 on the reproductive performance of hares at 5 farms, housed in breeding pairs in wooden or metal cages. The number of pairs per farm was 10-60, the number of pairs failing to produce leverets 2-18, the number of leverets born 68-300, and the number weaned 61-237. The av. number of leverets born per pair per year (+or- standard deviation) varied among farms from 4.0+or-4.0 to 7.8+or-5.3, and the av. number of litters per year from 2.1+or-1.9 to 3.5+or-2.2.
