Reproduction and welfare . Innovative methods for the improvement of reproductive efficiency and animal welfare. Part 1



Reproduction and welfare . Innovative methods for the improvement of reproductive efficiency and animal welfare. Part 1



Rivista di Coniglicoltura 41(1): 31-44



An review, dealing with the effects of management on female fertility and animal welfare in rabbits, the effects of nutrition during the growth period on female fertility, the principal endocrine and metabolic mechanisms as a function of different levels of energy in diets fed prior to puberty, an evaluation of the effects of the cellular level of leptin on the steroid activity of the corpus luteum and the effects of leptin on the reproductive performance of females and the age at weaning of their progeny. It was concluded that the strategy of slowing down growth using feed restrictions from 6 to 12 weeks of age, followed by ad lib. feeding, does not always improve the reproductive performance of rabbits and that further studies are required to confirm this.
