Thesis Abstract / Summary:

Generally, the study aimed to determine the growth performance of rabbits as affected by different mixed ration and specifically, it aimed to find out the best mixtures in the ration and determine if there are significant differences on the growth and performance of rabbits as affected by different mixed rations in terms of initial weight, weekly weight, final weight, feed conversion efficiency and total gain in weight.


Twelve rabbits were randomly distributed to four dietary treatments laid in Complete Randomized Design (CRD) having four (4) treatments. Each treatment is replicated three (3) times with one (1) rabbit per replication. The treatments were as follows:
T0= 100% commercial feeds
T1= 50% goose grass+ 25% rice bran+ 25% banana fruit
T2=50% banana fruit+25% rice bran +25% goose grass
T3=50% rice bran +25% goose grass +25% banana fruit


Results showed that rabbits fed with 100% commercial feeds gained more weight than those rabbits fed with different mixed ration. In terms of feed consumption, it was observed that T2 and T3 consumed more feeds than the rabbits fed with pure feeds. The feed conversion efficiency of the rabbits has no significant differences among treatment means. Rabbits fed with 100% CF were more efficient compared to other treatments. However, rabbits fed with pure commercial feeds incurred the highest amount of feed cost compared to other treatments. On the cost and return analysis, rabbits fed with 50% RB+ 25%GG+ 25%B produced the highest net income of Php. 704.30 with a ROI of 64.28%. In order to address the high cost of feed, the adoption of the mixed ration is going to be a good option. Rabbits are also potential as meat-producing animals in the tropics, particularly on subsistence-type small farms. Such characteristics as small body size (thus low daily feed requirements), short generation interval, high reproductive potential, rapid growth rate and the ability to utilize forages and fibrous agricultural by-products are attributes in favor of rabbit production (Cheeke, 1986).
