  1. UTILIZATION OF PELLETED AND NON PELLETED FEED BY GROWING RABBITS IN TROPICAL CONDITIONS

    FOMUNYAM, R.T.; NDOPING, B.N.
    [EN] A total of 48 four weeks old rabbits were divided in 3 homogenous groups and caged individually. During a 6 weeks trial they received ad libitum the same diet, but pelleted in long or short pellets (diameter 1.1 cm and length of 6.5 or 2.1 cm) or presented as mash. Rabbits fed long and short pellets ate and grew similarly (adg of 29.5 and 27.3 g/d) but significantly grew better than those fed on all mash diet (21.9 g/day). Form of feed did not affect mortality rates (O or 1 dead rabbit/group). However, cost of wasted feed for rabbits fed long pellets and mash was about...

  2. SOME HAEMATOLOGICAL VALUES IN RABBITS FROM SUBTROPICAL TRINIDAD, WEST INDIES

    Cazabon, E.P.I.; Rastogi, R.K.; Laukner, F.B.; Ali, B.A.
    [EN] Blood samples from a total of 129 rabbits comprising fatteners (4-24 weeks) and adults (>24 weeks), males and females, and two breeds (New Zealand White and mixed) were analysed for haemoglobin concentration (Hb), haematocrit (Ht), mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC), white blood cell count (WBC), differential WBC (neutrophils (N), lymphocutes (L), eosinophils (E), monocytes (M), and Basophils (B)), and plasma protein (PP) concentration. Mean values for these parameters were given as : Hb : 123.0 gm/I ; Ht : 38.6% ; WBC : 6.9 x 103/μI ; N : 46.9% ; L : 39.2% ; E : 0.9% ; M : 4.4% ; B : 2.1 % ;...

  3. PROTEIN AND ENERGY SOURCES FOR RABBIT DIETS IN CAMEROON.1 -PROTEIN SOURCES

    FOTSO, J.M.; FOMUNYAM, R.T.; NDOPING, B.N.
    [EN] A total of 64 New Zealand and Californian rabbit were caged individually to study the nutritive value of 4 protein sources for growing rabbits. Rabbit fed fish meal and chicken offal as principal protein sources in the diet consumed more and grew significantly (P<0.01) faster (30.1 and 26.7 d/day) than those fed plan! proteins of cassava leaf and cotton seed meals (25.0 and 22.3 g/day). Carcass yields of 54 % for rabbits fed fish meal diets, 52.3 % for those fed diets with cassava leaf meal, were similar but significantly (P<0.05) higher than 49.92 % for rabbits fed cotton seed based diets. Calculated meat costs per kilogram...

  4. PRESENT STATUS OF THE HEIFER PROJECT INTERNATIONAL-CAMEROON RABBIT PROGRAM : BACK TO THE FUTURE

    LUKEFAHR, S.D.; NKWOCHA, H.I.; NJAKOI, H.; TAWAH, E.; AKOB, J.M.; KONGYU, F.A.; NJWE, R.M.; GUDAHL, D.
    [EN] In the past five years, Heifer Project lnternational (HPI) has distributed 2, 119 rabbits to 1,41 O limited-resource families in 66 villages primarily located in !he northwest province of Cameroon. However, these figures exclude thousands of additional farmers who received either direct or indirect assistance by HPI since project inception in 1982. HPl's approach towards poverty alleviation is to financially support a new rabbit project for farm families in a selected village for a period of three years. Technical follow-up support is then extended for an additional two years, after which time the anticipated self-sufficient project is formally phased-out. In 1999, accompanied by HPI field staff, the consultant (the...

  5. MOTHER-YOUNG RELATIONS IN THE EUROPEAN RABBIT : PHYSIOLOGICAL AND BEHAVIORAL LOCKS AND KEYS

    Hudson, R.; Schaal, B.; Martínez-Gómez, M.; Distel, H.
    [EN] In any mammalian species a proper understanding of the natural, coevolved mother-young system is of major importance if productivity is to be optimized under conditions compatible with !he animals' welfare. The European rabbit (Oryctolagus cunicu/us) is particularly interesting in this regard given its unusually limited and stereotyped pattern of maternal care and the equally stereotyped set of corresponding specializations in !he young. For each of five key topics - the nest, parturition, nursing, suckling, and weaning - the behavior of the mother and then of the kits is described, followed by a consideration of !he possible application of this information to improving husbandry.

  6. FACTORS INFLUENCING LITTER TRAITS AND BODY WEIGHT UPTO 12 WEEKS AMONG TEMPERATE RABBIT BREEDS IN HUMID TROPICS

    Marykutty, T.; Nandakumar, P.
    [EN] High prolificacy and fast growth rate make rabbit an ideal meat animal for the developing countries. Present investigation was aimed at analysing the prolificacy and growth rate among temperate breeds of rabbits namely, New Zealand White, Grey Giant and Soviet Chinchilla, under humid tropics of Kerala, India. The effects of breed and sire on litter traits and the effects of breed, sire and sex on body weight traits were analysed. Data from 172 kindlings showed an average litter size at birth of 4.38 and litter weight at birth of 228 g. Breed effects were significan! (P<0.05) on litter size and litter weight at weaning. The highest litter size...

  7. EFFECT OF FEEDING DIETS WITH GRADED LEVELS OF AJAR SEED ON THE GROWTH PERFORMANCE AND NUTRIENT UTILIZATION IN RABBITS

    Saikia, G.; Baruah, K.K.
    [EN] Thirty six weanling (42 days, average weight 998 g) male New Zealand White Rabbits were divided into 4 groups of 9 each on the basis of body weight. Four isonitrogenous (18% CP) and isocaloric (3.0 Kcal DE /g) concentrate mixture (T1. T2. T3 and T4) containing O, 9, 18 and 27% Ajar seed kernel (ASK) replacing a mixture of wheat bran and cereals were prepared. Rabbits of group 1, 2, 3 and 4 were fed individually on their respective concentrate mixture (T1. T2. T3 and T4) and green paragrass in the ratio of 80 : 20, on dry matter basis for 42 days. Daily feed intake...

  8. COMPARISON OF DIFFERENT IN VITRO DIGESTIBILITY METHODS FOR NUTRITIVE EVALUATION OF RABBIT DIETS.

    Pascual Amorós, Juan José; Cervera, C.; Fernández-Carmona, J.
    [EN] Seven simplified experimental diets for rabbits with a wide range of acid detergen! fibre content (87 to 525 g kg-1 dry matter) were used to compare three different in vitro techniques for evaluating their dry matter and organic matter digestibilities, based on the use of multienzyme, caecal or faecal inocula. The multienzyme method always resulted in higher in vitro dry matter digestibility values (P<0.001) !han those methods based on the use of digestive trae! inocula. The prediction equations for dry matter digestibility obtained with the multienzyme and caecal in vitro techniques showed higher precision (r2 = 0.95 and 0.88, respectively) and lower variability (se: 4.32 and 6.58, respectively)...
