Relationships between microflora and caecal fermentation in rabbits before and after weaning.

Abstract

Some microbiological and biochemical parameters of caecal content were studied in 15- to 49-d-old rabbits that were slaughtered sequentially. The ammonia level did not differ before weaning (11.5 mmol/L on average) (P = 0.41) or after weaning (7.4 mmol/L on average) (P = 0.19) but decreased by 40% (P < 0.001) between days 29 and 32. The level of pH… (More)
