Use of group records of feed intake to select for feed efficiency in rabbit
(Journal of Animal Breeding and Genetics, 2019-04-24) Genètica i Millora Animal
Models for genetic evaluation of feed efficiency (FE) for animals housed in groups when they are either fed ad libitum (F) or on restricted (R) feeding were implemented. Definitions of FE on F included ...
Genome-wide association study for feed efficiency in collective cage-raised rabbits under full and restricted feeding
(Animal Genetics, 2020-07-22) Genètica i Millora Animal
Feed efficiency (FE) is one of the most economically and environmentally relevant traits in the animal production sector. The objective of this study was to gain knowledge about the genetic control of ...
Breeding farm, level of feeding and presence of antibiotics in the feed influence rabbit cecal microbiota
(Animal Microbiome, 2020-11-02) Genètica i Millora Animal; Gestió Integral de Residus Orgànics
Background The effect of the production environment and different management practices in rabbit cecal microbiota remains poorly understood. While previous studies have proved the impact of the age or ...
