Effect of different feeding levels during rearing and age at first insemination on body development, body composition, and puberty characteristics of rabbit does



Effect of different feeding levels during rearing and age at first insemination on body development, body composition, and puberty characteristics of rabbit does



World Rabbit Science 9(3): 101-108



An experiment was performed to study the effect of feeding level during rearing and age at first mating on body growth, body development and puberty of rabbit does. Experiment started at six weeks of age, using 64 animals of a strain of New-Zealand White rabbits. Feeding level was either ad libitum (AL) or restricted (R) and animals were inseminated at 14.5 or 17.5 weeks of age. In R-animals, feed restriction was up to 58% of AL from 6 to 12 weeks of age.
