The last few years due to intensive methods of cultivation and breeding of rabbits has been a change regarding how the proteins needed for rabbits. The previously existing recommendations of the norm protein per 100 g of feed was 10 – ’12 Today, this rule is different. What now offer?
For pregnant and lactating rabbits, and rabbits up to 4 months is recommended to give 15 – 18 g rabbits during the rest females and for repair of rabbits should be given to 12 – 13 g of keratin. Roughage rabbits absorb up to 50 – 75%, greens 60 – 85%, root crops 80 – 85%, corn by 70 – 80%, 35% bagasse. Assimilation of proteins is largely dependent on the fiber contained in the products. The richest in content of proteins are considered legumes, and beans should be stored for about a year. Beans of this crop in the state grind heat quickly and they do not want to eat rabbits, but also pose a threat for the health of the rabbits. Peas are not generally give as eat because it causes constipation, like rabbits feed peas, preferably milled, mixed with a total of up to 10% feed solids. Corn is used in an amount of 20 – 60%, it contains the histidine, tryptophan.
Once in the gastrointestinal system, the proteins decompose into amino acids, and the latter in turn help to create proteins for rapid development of rabbit body.
