  1. The influence of linseed on rabbit meat quality

    Bianchi, M.; Petracci, M.; Cavani, C.
    [EN] A research project was conducted to study the influence of the dietary use of whole linseed on rabbit meat quality. A total of 288 growing rabbits were fed ad libitum (from 55 to 81 d old) with a commercial diet (C) or experimental diets containing 3, 6, or 9% whole linseed (L3, L6 and L9, respectively). After slaughtering, L. lumborum muscles and rabbit meat hamburgers were used to determine pH, colour, cooking loss, total lipid content, fatty acid composition and induced TBARS. Hind leg muscles were analyzed for total lipid content, fatty acid composition and induced TBARS. Finally, a...

  2. Performance, digestive disorders and the intestinal microbiota in weaning rabbits are affected by a herbal feed additive

    Krieg, R.; Vahjen, W.; Awad, W.; Sysel, M.; Kroeger, S.; Zocher, E.; Hulan, H.W.; Arndt, G.; Zentek, J.
    [EN] A herbal feed additive (Digestarom(R), containing a mixture of onion, garlic, caraway, fennel, gentian, melissa, peppermint, anise, oak bark and clove) was fed to rabbit does and kits to study its impact on performance, post-weaning digestive disorders and intestinal microbiota. Two groups of 9 doe rabbits and their offspring, after weaning, were fed a standard diet without or with the addition of 300 mg Digestarom(R)/kg diet. Forty kits from each group were weaned at 28 d of age weighing 0.614±0.005 kg. They were caged in groups of four rabbits (10 cages/treatment) and fed the same diet as their mothers...

  3. Contribution of intensive rabbit breeding to sustainable development. A semi-quantitative analysis of the production in France

    Fortun-Lamothe, L.; Combes, S.; Gidenne, T.
    [EN] This work was aimed at evaluating the contribution of intensive rabbit breeding to sustainable development using a semi-quantitative method. Nine sustainability indicators were defined for the environmental (energy use, antibiotic use, and biodiversity), economic (profit, specialisation rate, and transmissibility) and social scales of sustainable development. A score (-1, 0 or +1) was given for each indicator using data from French rabbit farms (12,000 farms for economic results and 100 farms for social and environmental data). Scores were added within each scale to obtain a final score. It was revealed from the data analysis that intensive rabbit breeding had some...

  4. Effect of breeding system and farm hygiene on performances of growing rabbits and lactating does over two reproductive cycles

    Garrido, S.; Nicodemus, N.; García, J.; Chamorro, S.; Blas, J.C. de
    [EN] The aim of this paper was to study the effect of the intensive breeding system (IBS: insemination 4 d postpartum and weaning age at 25 d) vs. the semi-intensive breeding system (SIBS: insemination 11 d post-partum and weaning age at 35 d) on lactating does' performance and the combined effect of the type of farm hygiene (cleaned and disinfected or not) on the performance of growing rabbits from weaning until 56 d of age. A total of 58 New Zealand x Californian rabbit does (29/reproductive rhythm) and 168 young rabbits per combination weaning age x type of farm were...

  5. A new method to measure the redox potential (Eh) in rabbit caecum: relationship with pH and fermentation pattern

    Kimsé, M.; Monteils, V.; Bayourthe, C.; Gidenne, T.
    [EN] This study aimed to assess the anaerobic status of the caecal biotope in the rabbit through the measurement of its redox potential (Eh). Since the caecal content has a high viscosity, the duration of the Eh measurement is high (10 to 20 min) and two methods were compared in 10 week- old rabbits: in vivo vs. post-mortem. In addition, Eh, pH and temperature of the caecal digesta were analysed according to caecotrophy and three periods in the day (soft faeces production: 08:00-10:00 h and 12:00-14:00 h; hard faeces production: 17:00-19:00 h) were compared, using 34 rabbits aged 65 d...

  6. Mycotoxins in rabbit feed: A review

    Mézes, M.; Balogh, K.
    [EN] Rabbit meat constitutes a measurable portion of the human diet. Thus, the ingredients used in rabbit feed and their contamination with undesirable substances are fundamentally important both in terms of the quality of the meat and the potential human health impacts associated with the animal-based food-production chain. The inclusion of feed ingredients which are contaminated with toxic substances may have a range of biological or toxicological effects on animal production. Rabbit feed ingredients that constitute complete feed products are derived from different raw materials and the contamination of feed materials would represent an important potential hazard. This review summarizes...
