Nutrient digestibility of mulberry foliage (Morus alba) in fattening rabbits



Nutrient digestibility of mulberry foliage (Morus alba) in fattening rabbits



Revista Cientifica, Facultad de Ciencias Veterinarias, Universidad del Zulia 16(4): 364-370



An experiment was carried out using 36 New Zealand x California growing rabbits, 975+or-225 g liveweight, to determine the apparent nutrient digestibility of mulberry foliage (Morus alba). The animals were distributed in completely randomized study with 12 repetitions. The treatments were: T1=basal diet, T2=inclusion of 30% mulberry foliage in the diet and T3=mulberry foliage. The experimental period lasted 11 days (4 days of collection).
