Effect of environmental enrichment on the production, performance, and carcass lesions in fattening rabbits



Effect of environmental enrichment on the production, performance, and carcass lesions in fattening rabbits



Rivista di Coniglicoltura 40(4): 44-45



Rabbits, placed in cages (120 x 50 x 40 cm) at 8 animals/cage from 55 days of age to slaughter at 90 days old, showed better weight gains and a higher carcass weight when their cage environment was enriched with a piece of wood.
