The effect of feeding multi-nutrient mini blocks and pelleted diets on the growth of rabbits
The effect or substituting pelleted diets with multinutrierit blocks on the growth of weanling rabbits was studied. The pelleted diets and the multinutrient blocks contained crude protein 23.31 % and 24.25%, crude fibre 21.65 and 23.00%, ether extract 10.44% and 10.97% respectively. The body weight gain (10.58g/day), feed intake (110.20g/day) and feed efficiency ratio (0.58) of rabbits fed multinutrient blocks were non- significantly higher by 8.50%, 10.65% and 10.34% respectively, than those rabbits fed with pelleted basal diet.
