The diet of rabbits

May 22nd 2014 at 9:16 PM

The rabbit is an amazing animal both side of reproductive performance and on the side of meat quality we offer. That's why we have to pay to feed our rabbits all the attention and care that they deserve.

To see reproductive superiority of the rabbit, let's compare a pig, a cow grazing and a doe. Typical reproductive performance of these three animals are presented in table 1 below.

A sow weighing 200 pounds has on average two litters a year and a total of 16 pigs. At weaning age, these 16 animals weighing around 200 pounds. In other words, a porker offers us every time 100% of weight in new animalsĀ

. On the other hand, a 500 kg cow gives us a calf when the time reaches one year weighing about 200 pounds - that the reproductive performance of cows is 40% of its weight.

A doe but weighing 5.5 pounds offers on average four litters a year and a total of 30 bunnies that weaning them weigh around 60 pounds. That is, the reproductive performance of rabbits is 1.100% of the body weight!
