Feeding rabbits on concentrate-free diets

Feeding rabbits on concentrate-free diets

Harper Adams Utility Poultry Jour 29(4): 68-72

Maintenance trials with 40 Havana and 40 Angora rabbits were conducted with half of each breed on a mixed diet and half on a concentrate-free diet. The first 12 weeks a ration of 10.5 oz. of grass, clover and rape and 2.7 oz. of hay per day was inadequate. The next 24 weeks 17.4 oz. succulents and 3.7 oz. hay produced inferior results as compared with 22.8 oz. succulents and 5.8 oz. hay. The latter amts. produced a fur growth equal with those on mixed diet. A further 36 weeks average rations of 21 oz. herbage and 2.7 oz. hay barely maintained wt.
