Title: Reproductive Performance, Meat Chemical Composition and Quality of Sudan Baladi, New Zealand White and California Rabbit Breeds
Author: Abdelhameed, Hind
Abstract: Ten females and two males from NZW, CAL and local Baladi rabbit were used to study the reproductive performance, meat chemical composition and quality of Sudan Baladi and New Zealand white rabbits. Compared with temperate rabbit breeds, Sudan Baladi (SB) rabbit breed was found to have smaller litter size, lighter birth weight and weaned small litter-size, than New Zeland white and California breeds. Weaning weight was similar in the three rabbit breeds. Still birth rate and mortality rate were lower for Sudan Baladi rabbits than for the two temperate rabbit breeds. Chemically, Sudan rabbit meat had less moisture and more fat than New Zealand white, a finding which reflected differences in maturity. The colour of the meat of Sudan Baladi rabbit was darker red and than that of New Zealand white. The former breed had slightly tough meat than the latter one.
