Reproduction of rabbit does divergently selected for body fat content



Reproduction of rabbit does divergently selected for body fat content



Acta Agriculturae Slovenica (Suppl.1): 161-167



This study was conducted to determine the reproductive performance of high body fat and low body fat rabbits. The conception rate, litter size, litter weight at 21 days and litter survival and mortality at 21 days were observed. Results revealed that the does selected for high body fat had higher conception rate and produced smaller litter size with higher litter weight and survival at 21 days than low fat body does.
