Performance of growing rabbits fed concentrate alone and mixed concentrate-forage diets

Performance of growing rabbits fed concentrate alone and mixed concentrate-forage diets

Journal of Sustainable Agriculture and the Environment 1(1): 51-55

Eighteen 6-week-old crossbred (Dutch x Chinchilla) rabbits of both sexes ranging from 850-1025 g body weight were fed either a formulated diet alone (FD), formulated diet plus green Centrosema (FDC), or formulated diet plus green Mucuna (FDM) in an experiment laid out in a completely randomized design.
