  1. The effect of stocking density and feeder types on the performance of growing rabbits under conditions prevailing in Cameroon.

    Mbanya, J. N.; Ndoping, B. N.; Fomunyam, R. T.; Noumbissi, A.; Mbomi, E.S.; Fai, E.N.; Teguia, A.
    Weaned rabbits fed with a maize based diet supplemented with Guatemala grass were used in a factorial experiment to compare the effects of stocking rate (5 vs 10 per m²) and feeder type on production parameters and mortality over an 8 week period under Cameroon conditions. Stocking rate did not affect (p>0.05) feed intake, feed conversion efficiency or mortality rates. Increasing the number of animals from 2 to 4 in a cage resulted in a significant decrease in daily weight gain (P<0.05) and final body weight (p<0.01) and a significant (P<0.01) increase in the amount of feed wasted. The type...

  2. Influence of open-air rearing on fatty acid composition and sensory properties of rabbit meat.

    Cavani, C.; Bianchi, M.; Petracci, M.; Toschi, T.G.; Parpinello, G.P.; Kuzminsky, G.; Morera, P.; FINZI, A.
    A study was conducted to evaluate the fatty acid (FA) composition and sensory properties of meat from rabbits housed in the open-air in movable colony cages on pasture during the fattening period. A total of 60 rabbits were reared using conventional husbandry practises and subsequently divided into two groups at a live weight of about 2.0 kg and at 62 days old. The indoor group was kept in conventional bi-cellular cages (2 animals per cage, 0.07 m2 per rabbit), while the open-air group was reared in movable colony cages (6 animals per cage, 0.17 m2 per rabbit) on a polyphyta...

  3. Effects of different light intensities on quality of spermatozoa in rabbits

    Besenfelder, U.; Theau-Clément, M.; Sabbioni, E.; Castellini, C.; Renieri, T.; HAVLICEK, V.; HUBER, T.; WETSCHER, F.; MÖSSLACHER, G.; BREM, G.
    The present study evaluated the effects of light intensity on semen production in rabbits. Bucks were allocated to two groups which were exposed to a lighting program (16L:8D) with different light intensities (Group 1: <100 Lux; Group 2: >200 Lux). Prior to the thirteen weeks duration of the examination period, bucks were adapted to the light system for two months and conditioned for semen collection for one month. There was no effect of light intensity on libido, concentration and motility of spermatozoa. However, there were more bucks in group 1 delivering ejaculate with the gel fractions (P = 0.0065) and...

  4. Degradation of dietary oligofructose and inulin in the gastro-intestinal tract of the rabbit and the effects on caecal pH and volatile fatty acids.

    Maertens, L.; Aerts, J.M.; De Boever, J.
    Three experimental fattening diets were each fed ad libitum to 12 animals of 8-9 weeks of age (initial weight 2,257 ± 87 g). The diets contained 0% (Control), 2% oligofructose (OF) (Raftifeed(R) OPS) or 2% inulin (Raftifeed(R) IPS). After an adaptation period of 10 days, the individually caged rabbits received the same diets with Cr2O3 as a marker. For the 24 h before they were euthanised (between 08:30 and 09:00), rabbits wore a plastic collar to prevent caecotrophy. Dietary treatment affected gut acidity only in the caecum where a tendency to a reduced pH in the inulin-fed rabbits was observed....

  5. Critical points in the transport of commercial rabbits to slaughter in Spain that could compromise animals' welfare.

    Buil, T.; María, G. A.; Villarroel, M.; Liste, G.; López, M.
    The welfare of commercial rabbits depends on the attitudes and handling procedures used by farmers, hauliers and abattoir personnel, as well as the transport logistics. Many studies have been performed on commercial rabbit production but less attention has been paid to identifying critical points during the whole transport procedure. In this study, a survey of rabbit transport was performed in Spanish abattoirs to determine the parts of the process that most compromise the animal's welfare. Data were collected for the methods for loading, unloading, transporting, holding and slaughter. Handling procedures differ widely among farms, especially regarding cage size (ranging from...
