Abstract


The aim of the study was to compare the growth performance of a commercial hybrid of rabbits Hycole in small stud (breed 1) with the growth performance of the commercial hybrid Hycole in factory farms (breed 2). In evaluated breed 1 the weight was at weaning 1029,18 g, in the breed 2 it was 1106,04 g. In 49th day in the breed 1 the weight was 1241,75 g and in the breed 2 the weight was 1288 g. At the age of 56 days the weight was in the breed 1 - 1458,19 g and in the breed 2 - 1519,93 g. In 63rd day we found out that the weight in the breed 1 was 1729,75 g and in the breed 2 it was 1781,10 g. At the age of 70 days we found out that the weight in the breed 1 was 2049,84 g and in the breed 2 it was 2122,56 g. In 77th day we found out that the weight in the breed 1 was 2322,14 g and in the breed 2 it was 2481,5 g. At the age of 84 days we found out that the weight of the rabbits in the breed 1 was 2602,89 g and in the breed 2 was the weight 2799,41 g. Average daily increases in a period of a fattening  were 37,47 g in the breed 1 and 40,32 g in the breed 2. Average lifetime daily increases were 30,99 g in the breed 1 and 33,33 g in the breed 2.
