Effect of decreasing dietary protein level and replacing starch with soluble fibre on digestive physiology and performance of growing rabbits.

Abstract

At weaning (33 days of age), 246 hybrid rabbits (782 ± 53 g live weight) were divided into six experimental groups and fed ad libitum six iso-ADF diets formulated according to a bifactorial arrangement with two protein levels (152 and 162 g/kg) and three soluble fibre-to-starch ratios (0.2, 0.6 and 1.5), the latter obtained by replacing starch (from 209 to… (More)
