Feed adult, non-lactating rabbits approximately 1/2 ounce of this product per pound of body weight per day. For pregnant does, gradually increase the amount fed from 1/2 to 1 ounce per pound of body weight per day during the last two weeks of gestation. Nursing does and their litters should be free fed. Lactating does will consume 1 to 3 ounces per pound of body weight per day. Gradually increase the amount fed from the time of kindling so at the time the litter is one week old the doe is consuming all of the feed she will eat.
Meat rabbits will consume an average of 4 to 5 ounces per day during the period from weaning to market.
Follow these management practices:
- Feed requirements of rabbits will vary depending on their body weight, environmental temperatures, type of housing, and stage of production (maintenance, gestation, lactation, growth).
- Offer rabbits the amount they will clean up in approximately one hour (30 minutes if feeding twice daily) and adjust the amount to maintain condition. Do not overfeed.
- Mature rabbits tend to overeat, become too heavy and lose body condition. Adjust feed rates to maintain desired weight.
- Young rabbits will begin to consume feed when they come out of the nest box at approximately three weeks of age.
- Feeding programs are only as effective as the management practices followed.
- Provide plenty of fresh, clean water at all times.
- When changing animals from one feeding program to another, do so over a 5 to 7 day period. Mix the new feed with the old feed and gradually increase the amount of new feed mixed.
