  1. Rabbit meat processing: historical perspective to future directions

    Petracci, Massimiliano; Cavani, Claudio
    [EN] In past centuries, because rabbits are relatively small, animals slaughtered for consumption were generally eaten immediately. However, since a single rabbit would offer little more product than could be consumed at one sitting, little effort was devoted to developing preserved rabbit products (such as salted or dried meat, sausages, etc.). For this reason, although there is a rich history of recipes using rabbit meat in the Mediterranean area, there are few traditional further-processed products. Nowadays, even though the processing industry is pushing more and more towards the introduction of more attractive products (i.e. ready meals, ready-to-cook, etc.) for consumers...

  2. Effects of transgenic poplar leaves with binary insect-resistance genes used as feed for rabbits

    Yang, Liyan; Sun, Yi; Hao, Yaoshan; Wang, Yixue
    [EN] The aim of this work was to explore the potential toxicological effects on rabbits of transgenic poplar (Populus cathayana Rehd.) leaves with binary insect-resistance genes used as feed. Fifty-four 40-d-old weaned New Zealand White Rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) (live weight 0.98±0.1 kg) were fed for 70 consecutive days with a common pelleted diet and fresh poplar leaves containing a chitinase-BmkIT gene combination or untransformed counterparts (60 g/d). Rabbit body weight and hematological and biochemical data in blood samples were recorded. Organ histological structures were observed and the organ weights in the 2 groups were also measured. The results of the...

  3. Dietary fatty acid profile: effects on caecal fermentation and performance of young and fattening rabbits

    Casado, Cristina; Moya, Javier; Pascual, Juan José; Blas Ferrer, Enrique; Cervera Fras, Mª Concepción
    [EN] The present work was performed to study the effect of dietary inclusion of different fatty acid combinations (saturated, n-3 and n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids; PUFA) on caecal fermentation activity, feed intake, growth rate and feed efficiency of young rabbits around weaning (17 to 44 d) and fattening rabbits (28 to 63 d of age). Five diets were formulated using the same raw materials and including 3% of lard (A diet, rich in saturated fat), sunflower oil (S diet, rich in n-6 PUFA), linseed oil (L diet, rich in n-3 PUFA), sunflower oil and lard at 1:1 rate (SA diet),...

  4. Characterization of electrical and mechanical activities of rabbit uterus associated with the presence of capacitated and non-capacitated spermatozoa

    Lazcano-Reyes, J.F.; Montiel, J.L.; Medrano, A.
    [EN] To investigate the effects capacitated spermatozoa may exert upon motility of the rabbit uterus, both contractility and electrical activity (frequency and intensity) were measured in 3 distinctive uterine segments of anaesthetized does: horn (UH), uterotubal junction (UTJ) and tube (UT) after 1) natural mating, 2) infusion of either seminal plasma or PBS, 3) infusion of either capacitated or non-capacitated spermatozoa. Basal values were: 17.1, 15.7, 16.4 g (contractility, P>0.05); 3.5, 3.5, 3.4 Hz (frequency, P>0.05); 0.49, 0.50, 0.57 ¿V (intensity, P>0.05) for UH, UTJ, UT, respectively. Seminal plasma caused an increase (P<0.05) in the UH contractility: 26.3 vs. 11.7...

  5. Body morphometric development during growth and maturity of coloured dwarf rabbits available in the Italian market

    Dalle Zotte, Antonella; Ricci, Rebecca; Sartori, Alberto; Lukefahr, Steven; Paci, Gisella
    [EN] This study was designed to measure the live performance of "coloured dwarf" rabbits available in the Italian market during both the growing and adult maintenance periods to provide new insights on this breed, with specific regard to the gender effect. A further objective was to identify the morphometric characteristics of the selected population and compare them to the standard breeding requirements. Body weight (BW) and body morphometric development were monitored in 145 "coloured dwarf" rabbits (80 males and 65 females) during 2 different periods: 7-21 wk of age (growth) and 28-45 wk of age (adultmaintenance). The animals were housed...

  6. Behavioural activity of wild rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) under semi-natural rearing systems: establishing a seasonal pattern

    Díez Valle, Carlos; Sánchez García-Abad, Carlos; Pérez Garrido, José Antonio; Bartolomé, Daniel José; González Eguren, Vicente; Wheatley, Chris; Alonso de la Varga, Marta Elena; Gaudioso Lacasa, Vicente Ramiro
    [EN] The activity of 2 populations of wild rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus, L. 1758), consisting of 14 adults (>9 mo of age) each (4 males and 10 females), was analysed over 2 consecutive years. Rabbits were captured in the wild and kept in 2 separate enclosures of 0.5 ha, with each enclosure divided into 2 zones: a smaller area where warrens were located (breeding area) and a larger area where food and water were provided (feeding area). Seven rabbits in each enclosure were individually tagged with a microchip (2 males and 5 females) and, after installing 2 detection devices, it was...

  7. A study of growth and some blood parameters in Czech rabbits

    Tumová, Eva; Martinec, Miloslav; Volek, Zdenek; Härtlová, Helena; Chodová, Darina; Bízková, Zuzana
    [EN] The aims of this study were to describe selected performance characteristics of Czech local breeds and to compare these breeds with a commercial hybrid. Seven original Czech breeds were included in the study: the giant breed Moravian Blue (MB), the medium breeds Czech White (CW), Czech Spotted (CS), Czech Solver (CSo), Moravian White of Brown Eye (MW) and the small breeds Czech Black Guard Hair (CB) and Czech Gold (CG) and the Hyplus rabbits. Growth of the rabbits was significantly (P=0.001) affected by genotype; MB and CW breeds grew non-significantly faster than Hyplus. The highest daily weight gain was...
