Rabbit responses to Pigeon pea (PP), Cowpea (CoP) and Soybean (SB) as sources of protein for growing rabbits were determined. Flemish Giant (FG), California Black (CB) and New Zealand White (NZW)) were fed Soybean (Glycine max), Pigeon pea (Cajunus cajan) and Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata) as protein sources in the ration. Eighteen rabbits weaned at six weeks of age were used for each breed (a total of 54 rabbits) out of which six of them were assigned to Ration 1 (containing 31.6 % sSoybean), six… Expand

GROWTH PERFORMANCE AND CARCASS PRODUCTION OF REX RABBITS FED WITH CORN OIL SUPPLEMENTATION
TLDR
It is concluded that supplementation of corn oil in the diet had no effect on growth performance and carcass production of Rex rabbits. Expand

Comparison of carcass characteristics in five strains of meat rabbit selected on different traits
TLDR
The results showed that line R, selected on growth rate for twenty generations, showed the most important differences compared to the other lines, and models of analyses including covariates had an excellent behaviour despite the wide range of values in E2. Expand
Carcass characteristics and meat quality of rabbit lines selected for different objectives:: I. Between lines comparison
TLDR
It can be concluded that differences in tenderness in loin meat rabbit are more affected by genetic origin than by body weight. Expand
Carcass characteristics and meat quality of rabbit lines selected for different objectives
TLDR
Fat-moisture, texture, pH and luminosity of Longissimus explained a large part of the observed variation, which implies a certain constancy in rabbit meat quality. Expand

Effects of feeding high-oil corn to beef steers on carcass characteristics and meat quality.
TLDR
Feeding high-oil corn in finishing beef cattle diets enhanced intramuscular lipid deposition and increased unsaturation of fatty acids of the longissimus. Expand
Prediction of carcass composition in the rabbit.
TLDR
Rabbit carcass composition was predicted from retail cuts and external measurements by using regression equations and fat depots had a low predictive power for fat percentage of the dissected meat in the half carcass. Expand
Fatty acid content and composition of english beef, lamb and pork at retail.
TLDR
The muscles of red meat species are a valuable source of PUFA, particularly the C20 and C22 n-3 fatty acids, in the human diet and that, considered as part of a varied diet, the low P:S ratio of the ruminant muscle, the high n-6:n-3 ratio of pork and the total fatty acid contents do not detract significantly from the nutritional value of lean meat.
