Our page e-book covers all aspects of rabbit reproduction from mating, to pregnancy, kindling, care of the rabbit kits, weaning, sexing, and rebreeding. Now you can avoid the common problems with raising rabbits, and learn all the interventions you can employ to avert disaster with bucks, does, and kits.
A total of crossbred rabbits of both genders were divided into six experimental groups and fed ad libitum six diets formulated in a 2×3 factorial arrangement based on three dietary energy levels (low, approximately MJ/kg; medium, MJ/kg: and high, MJ/kg) and two crude protein levels (15% and 17%).
The influence of subcutaneous injections of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) on rabbit performance, hematological and biochemical parameters of blood, antioxidant status, and the residues of silver in meat and blood in two breeds (New Zealand White (NZW) and Jabali) of rabbits growing under high ambient temperature was evaluated.
A total of 90 six-week-old rabbits (45 NZW Author: Magdy Abdelsalam, Ibrahim Al-Homidan, Tarek Ebeid, Osama Abou-Emera, Mohamed Mostafa, Mohamed Abd El. lization of nutrients by the rabbit. Additionally, the rabbit has developed a strategy of high feed intake (65–80 g kg−1 body weight (BW)) and a rapid transit of feed through the diges-tive system to meet nutritional requirements.
To reach its full functional capacity, the digestive system of the growing rabbit must. The proportions of the carcass parts were influenced by the body sizes and the breed of the rabbits as well.
The hind part percentage was the highest (Pbreed CW and the small breed lowest (Pbreed CS. This breed also had Cited by: 5. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook. If you need to print pages from this book, we recommend downloading it as a PDF.

I did find one study that looked at age and body weight at first insemination (and the interaction of those two factors).
The most common breeds for meat rabbits are New Zealands (shown at top of post) and Californians. These, and crosses thereof, have a nice litter size, are usually good moms, and produce a fast growing, well-constructed carcass.
Breeds such as Flemish giants and the giant chinchilla are impressive in size. Nutritional Requirements of Rabbits Amy E. Halls, – Monogastric Nutritionist Shur-Gain, Nutreco Canada Inc.
Since rabbit production makes up only a very small percentage of the total animal production in the world, there is little information available or research performed on the nutrition of the Size: KB. The following excerpt is from Nichki Carangelo’s new book Raising Pastured Rabbits for Meat: An All-Natural, Humane, and Profitable Approach to Production on a Small Scale (Chelsea Green Publishing, November ) and is reprinted with permission from the publisher.
According to recent reports from gourmet food supplier D’Artagnan, rabbit sales. Besides the ton of info about all breeds of rabbits, you'll also learn about their functions and uses. It provides: Breed histories and photos, lots of big photos, of all ARBA rabbit breeds.
Included are 2 additional breeds found in the USA, the UK’s BRC breeds, plus as many global breeds as we were able to discover. All though there are some issues that are related to genetic problems bred to specific breeds there are just as many health issues that effect all breeds equally (or reasonably equally).
There is certainly no breed guaranteed problem free. Rabbits that are the same shape as wild rabbits are least likely to have problems with teeth/jaw misalignment.
Rabbit manure is high in nitrogen and phosphorus. It doesn’t burn plants like some fertilizers because it breaks down quickly. Rabbit manure is dry and doesn’t contain as much ammonia or uric acids as many other manures, such as cow and pig. Fresh rabbit manure is approximately 2% nitrogen, 1% phosphorus, and 1% potassium.
Also there is no such thing as a dwarf dutch. If you were told that is what the buck (male) is then he is a mixed breed. Also breeding 2 different breeds just leads to many more unwanted rabbits, that is unless you are going to eat them.
Palominos are great eating. Hair fibre length is an important economic trait of rabbits in fur production. However, molecular mechanisms regulating rabbit hair growth have remained elusive.
Here we aimed to characterise the skin traits and gene expression profiles of short-hair and long-hair rabbits by histological and transcriptome analyses.
Haematoxylin-eosin staining was Cited by: 1. Breed young does of the small and medium breeds at 6 months of age and giant breeds when they are 8 to 9 months old. As with all animals, the growth and physical development of the individual doe should be the final deciding factor when to breed.

Rarer Breeds. There are many other breeds available as well. Breeds such as Chinchilla, Harlequin, Californian, or Rex breeds. Dear Colleagues, The Animals journal gives us, as a scientific community, the opportunity to group, in a single number, all of the existing knowledge in the field of rabbit research.
For this purpose, this Special Issue will consist of two major sections, immunophysiology and pathology, which affects commercial, wild, experimental, and companion rabbits. Rabbit production systems are important providers of meat in many parts of the world due to the species' many advantages, including rapid growth rate and good reproductive performance.
This title covers topics such as digestive physiology, feed formulation and product quality as well as the innovative feeding strategies.5/5(1).
The largest of the angora breeds, the giant weighs in at least 9 1/2 to 10 pounds and are one of the highest fiber producers in the group (from one to two pounds of wool per year). While the giant is of German descent, the giant and the German are two separate breeds.
The giant was created by breeding German angoras with other breeds such as. Grobner et al. (), Medellin and Lukefahr () reported a range of feed conversion ratio of – for different breeds such as New Zealand White, Altex, Palamino and Chincilla Giant rabbits.
Comparing Saudi-2 with Saudi-3, both synthetic lines were nearly similar in most carcass traits studied (Table 4).Cited by: At all levels of work intensity, both carbohydrate (muscle glycogen, blood glucose) and fat are made available as fuels to the muscle.
However, at lower levels of work intensity, proportionally more energy is derived from fat oxidation. At higher levels of intensity, more energy is derived from carbohydrate metabolism.
XVI. RABBITS* A. INTRODUCTION 1. Breeds The Order Lagomorpha contains the rabbits, hares, cottontails and pikas. Present day breeds of domestic rabbits, including those used for laboratory studies, are all derived from the European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) (Sheail, ; Fox, ).File Size: KB.
Rabbits breed and grow so quickly that one pair of healthy does (females) can produce more than pounds of meat in a year. Compare that to. Bob Bennett is the author of six books on rabbit raising, including Storey’s Guide to Raising Rabbits and Rabbit Housing, as well as numerous magazine and newspaper has served as the editor of Rabbits magazine, has been a contributing editor to Countryside magazine, and is the founder of Domestic Rabbits and a past director of the American Rabbit /5().
In Veterinary Medicine (Eleventh Edition), Urea Nitrogen. Blood urea nitrogen (BUN) or serum urea nitrogen is the end product of the hepatic detoxification of ammonia.
It is this parameter that is sometimes also used to assess liver function. Urea nitrogen concentration in blood may decrease with impaired conversion of ammonia to urea by the liver. Cohort Study Design. Eighty-three (83) canines from seven different breeds were all fed the same dry extruded kibble diet for 5 weeks.
Small dogs (34 individuals; Beagle, Small Fox Terrier, and Miniature Schnauzer) had a mean weight of kg (range of – kg).Cited by: 5.So, in order to prevent this cycle perpetuating, we urge you to firstly not buy your rabbit in a pet shop and secondly, to not breed your rabbit simply for the sake of it, or a ‘bit of fun’.
Summary. We hope these notes will have given you an insight into what breeding involves in terms of the time commitment and dedication required.
