|Title:||Effect of hydroalcoholic propolis solution and robenidin on the performance of growing rabbits|
de Moura, LPP
|Abstract:||The objective of this work was to evaluate the effects of a hydroalcoholic propolis solution (HPS) on the performance and carcass traits New Zealand White rabbits from 40(th) to 90(th) days of age. Eighty-four rabbits, 54 female, 30 male were distributed to a complete randomly design, with six treatments and 14 replicates. One group received a diet containing 66 ppm of robenidin (.1% CycostatO) and pure water and the other five groups of animals received a diet without robenidin and water with different levels of HPS (.0, 4.0, 8.0, 12.0, and 16.0 mL of HPS/L of water). The treatment of animals that received .0 mL, of I-IFS consisted of a mixture of 2.2 mt of cereal alcohol/L of water. The water was provided in a dark bottle adapted to the cages with a valve for ingestion. The diet containing 16% of crude protein and 2600 kcal ED/kg, was pelleted and ad libitum fed. The inclusion of HPS in the drinking water was harmful to the performance of rabbits both periods of 40 to 70 days of age and the overall experimental period of 40 to 90 days of age. However, the use of HPS did not affect the quantitative carcass traits and edible viscera weight. The use of Robenidin provided a better performance than the HPS.|
