Economic importance of feed for rabbits
Rabbit feed is very important nutritionally and economically.
Confined rabbit production precludes the choice of feeds by rabbits. It follows that big differences in their performance can be expected as a result of different diet compositions and feeding methods.
While this method involves considerable time and labour, it enables the carer to keep a close watch on general condition and feeding habits of their rabbits. Once per day feeding practice is generally the best practice, since rabbits eat about 2.5 times as much at night as during the day, a once per day feeding should be offered in the evening.
Growth tends to be more rapid and efficient in self fed rabbits, this improved growth rate is due to the fact that self fed rabbits have access to feed at all times, consequently, they eat more frequently and chew their food more thoroughly. Rabbits that are on maintenance rations may consume more feed than necessary if feed is provided ad lib. Thus, only lactating does and market rabbits 4 to 8 weeks of age, should be fed free choice.
