Overview


This book is the first attempt to collect important information on the increasingly valued science of rabbit production into one volume. Over the past twenty years, rabbit production systems have grown into important meat providers in many parts of the world. Rabbits' rapid growth rate, reproductive performance, adaptability, and low fat content are just some of the reasons for the species' current popularity. A number of research groups have devoted considerable effort to studying rabbit production. This ambitious one-volume guide explores their studies, covering a broad variety of topics including nutrition, nutrient requirements, feeding value and management, pathology and carcass quality, plus information on Angora and pet rabbits. Written by distinguished research workers who are recognized specialists in the field from around the world, this book is an invaluable asset to those involved with rabbit feeding and research.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Rabbit production is an important source of meat in many parts of the world, and rabbits are also popular for fur and as companionship animals; yet the science of rabbit production has received relatively little attention. This collection of articles written by an assemblage of European researchers in agriculture and animal science, discusses a range of topics, including the digestive system of rabbits, nutritional requirements, feed manufacturing and formulation, climatic environment. Special chapters address the care needs of angora and pet rabbits."--SciTech Book News

"Lagomorphs are genetically distinct from other common laboratory, farm or pet animals, and more closely related to primates than to rodents. Their nutritional requirements are also distinctive ... [This book] first introduces the structure and function of the digestive system, describes carbohydrate, protein, fat, and fiber digestion in detail, and provides information on evaluation of foodstuffs that might make up a rabbit's diet. Next, the book considers the requirements for energy, protein, minerals, vitamins and supplements. Lebas et al. discuss the effect of diet on infectious disease in the gastrointestinal tract and gut pathology in general. ... Chapters on the functional considerations of rabbit meat quality, fur production ..., and pet maintenance conclude the book. The Nutrition of the Rabbit is recommended to researchers, rabbitries, and pet owners who want a factual basis for designing a diet for their rabbits."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
