Abstract: The present study was conducted to compare feedlot performance, carcass and non - carcass traits of a temperate rabbit breed, New Zealand white (NZW) versus a tropical local breed, Sudan baladi (SB) . Thirteen individual of each breed were used. The results revealed that breeds significantly ( P < 0.05 ) affected f inal live weight, and weight gain. The traits recorded 1.8 Vs. 1.4 kg and 17.4 Vs. 10.7 g/day for NZW and SB , respectively. For carcass traits, slaughter weight, hot carcass weight, cold carcass weight and one side carcass weight showed significant (P < 0.05 ) breed differences. They estimated 1672 Vs 1375g, 940 Vs. 749 g, 882 Vs 693 g and 413 Vs 324 g for the bre eds , respectively. Meat b one ra tio was significantly (P < 0.05 ) high in SB (5.5%) than in NZW (4.4%). Most of non carcass traits studied showed no significant breed differences. It is concluded that temperate breed was superior to local breed in meat yield and weight gain
