[EN] This paper deals with the relationship among wool
production, growth and development, hemoglobin (Hb)
content and the activities of serum alkaline phosphatase
(ALP), acid phosphatase (ACP), glutamic-pyruvic
transaminase (GPT) and 5'-nucleotidase (5'-NT) in angora
rabbit. The experiment was conducted in the University
Rabbit Farm from April 1991 to April 1992. 95 rabbits (29
German Angora, 36 Chinase Angora and 30 F1 rabbits of the
German (males) x Chinase (females) were raised under the
same conditions. In each type, the blood of 3 to 6 rabbits, 20,
45, 90 and 180 days old, was taken for the measuring of
The results show that body weight, body measurement and
wool production increase...

[EN] Nutritiva value of mulberry leaves as a sole
ration for adult rabbits was determinad by feeding mulberry
leaves to 1 O New Zealand White rabbits ( 1540 ± 62g, 35
weeks old). In DM mulberry leaves had CP 22.13, EE 3.90,
CF 5.90, Ash 13.35, NFE 54. 72, NDF 36.35, ADF 31.52, Ca
3.30 and P 1.43 %.
Except EE, all nutrients had fairly good digestible coefficients.
The DM intake was 68.52g/day, 5.30g/1 OOg body weight and 59.1 g/kg wo. 75. Average daily intake of digestible crude
protein (DCP) (11.2 g) and of digestible energy (175 kcal)
was adequate for maintenance of body weights of rabbits. In

[EN] Rabbíts weaned at 32 days of age were fed one of two isoenergetic
(10.6 MJ ADE/kg) and iso-protein (17 %) feeds ad
libitum: feed S with 25.8 % starch, 3.2 % fat and 16.2 % acid
detergent fibre (ADF) and feed F with 13.1 % starch, 6. 7 %
fat and 17.9 % ADF. Both groups were inoculated orally with
a toxinogenic Clostridium spiroforme strain NCTC 11493
and/or with a moderately enteropathogenic Escherichia coli
(EPEC) strain belonging to sero/biotype 0132/2+. The results
suggest that colibacillosis favours iota-enterotoxaemia and
vice-versa. Also the feed shows a distinct influence. Feed S
favoured iota-enterotoxaemia. The effect was most
pronounced in rabbits suffering from simultaneous...

[EN] One hundred and forty one rabbit does were
used to study the effect of tour diets differing in energy
concentration (8.92 to 11.86 MJ DE/kg), fibre and fat content,
two parturition-remating intervals (1 or 9 d), and two seasons
(hot season and rest of the year) on productiva performance
throughout a 18 months period. Addition of a 3.5 % of pork
lard to a diet containing 18 % ADF implied an increase of
energy digestibility (by 8 %, P<0.05), DE content (by 15 %,
P<0.001), feed intake (by 6 %, P<0.1), and DE intake (by
22.5 %, P<0.05). Fat addition did not affect average weight of
does, prolificacy, or...
