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 91 g/kg) with soluble fibre (from 48 to 136 g/kg). The trial lasted for 42 days until slaughter. The rabbits that were fed the diet with the… CONTINUE READING
