1.feed mix should be reasonable
Some farmers only feed the rabbits with grass, while some farmers only feed the rabbits with pellets. Both of these practices do not adequately meet the nutritional needs of rabbit production and growth.
As a herbivore, rabbits love to eat all kinds of green and juicy feeds (green grass, carrots and leaves), but they can’t feed all the green and juicy feed. It is difficult to obtain sufficient green and juicy feed for large-scale rabbits. Second, the green and succulent feed carbohydrates, protein and other nutrients are difficult to meet the needs of rabbit production and growth, three caged rabbits fed too much green and juicy feed is prone to diarrhea.
It is really troublesome for rabbits to feed only the pellets, but it is also impossible to feed the pellets. In addition, pellets are more prone to constipation than pellets in dry rabbits. Secondly, all kinds of trace elements and vitamins in pellets are not as good as green and juicy feed. High, rabbits only feed pellets are prone to trace elements and vitamin deficiency, and there are problems such as decreased fertility, poor body size and slow growth rate.
Therefore, rabbits must be properly matched to the feed. If the finished pellet feed is purchased directly, it is best to feed the rabbit with the rabbit feed, the rabbit feed the rabbit feed, and the rabbit feed the rabbit feed. Different types of pellets can meet the nutritional needs of the rabbits at different growth stages. . If you are processing pellets yourself, you can refer to the following pellets:
Mother rabbit pellets with reference scheme, corn 22%, soybean meal 15%, peanut meal 3%, wheat bran 12%, soybean straw powder 20%, peanut meal 13%, valerian powder 13%, calcium bicarbonate 0.5%, 0.5% salt and 1% premix;
Rabbit pellets with reference scheme, corn 21.5%, soybean meal 21%, wheat bran 15%, soybean straw powder 10%, peanut meal 15%, valerian powder 15%, calcium bicarbonate 1%, salt 0.5%, pre- Mixing 1%, diclazuril premix (content 5%) 0.02%;
Chengtu granules with reference scheme, corn 28%, soybean meal 15%, peanut meal 5%, wheat bran 15%, soybean straw powder 11%, peanut meal powder 12%, valerian powder 12%, calcium bicarbonate 0.5%, Table salt 0.5%, premix 1%, diclazuril premix (content 5%) 0.02%.
In addition to feeding the pellets to the rabbits, it is best to feed the female rabbits with some green and succulent feeds, especially for the pregnant and lactating female rabbits to feed the green and juicy feed, which can improve the fecundity of the rabbits and the rabbits. Constitution and the amount of milk in the female rabbit.
2. the feed is strictly controlled
The feed supplied to the rabbits every day should be strictly controlled to meet the nutritional needs of the rabbits as much as possible without waste. Many people have asked questions about how much feed the rabbit needs to eat a day. Some data also have relevant data answers, but depending on the rabbit breed, weight, production cycle, weight gain rate, feed quality and other conditions, specific feeding The quantity will also be quite different from the theoretical data. Therefore, farmers should not copy the data or other people’s data. They should slowly explore the specific feed intake of their rabbits. You can give the rabbit the right amount of feed first. If there is no material left, it may be less, then increase some feed in moderation. If there is leftover material at the next feeding, it may be more, then reduce some feed properly. After a period of exploration, you can master your own rabbit group or even each. The feed intake of rabbits at different stages of production. After the farmers have figured out the rabbit’s feed intake, they have to feed the rabbits quantitatively. Don’t let them eat a meal.
3.Feeding time and frequency
Under normal circumstances, adult rabbits are usually fed twice a day, that is, once in the morning and in the evening, but the amount of feeding should be distributed twice. The rabbit is a night-eater, with more feed intake and stronger digestion at night. Feed 70% of the total amount of food that can be distributed, and 30% of the total amount of food is distributed in the morning. After the rabbits open the food, they should be fed 3 to 4 times a day. This is because the growth rate of the rabbits is more than the nutrient demand and the feed intake is relatively small. Therefore, it is necessary to use a small number of feeding methods. Conducive to the growth of the rabbit.
Some large-scale rabbit farms use the feeding method of feeding once a day to save trouble. The feeding amount of one day is fed once in the evening. In the evening, the rabbit can eat most of the feed, and the rest will eat clean during the day. Sub-feeding to a single feeding greatly alleviated the working pressure of the rabbit farm, and the rabbit’s production and growth will not be greatly affected when the diet is satisfied, but this feeding method only Suitable for rabbits over 2.5 kg, it is not appropriate to use this feeding method for rabbits.
4.strict prevention of feed mildew
Rabbits are prone to loss of appetite, diarrhea, convulsions, infertility and abortion, and the symptoms of mold poisoning in rabbits. The harm to rabbit farms is enormous. Therefore, rabbits must be strict with feed mildew.
First, conditional farmers should process pellet feeds as much as possible, strictly control the quality of raw materials, and do not use moldy grass, corn, etc. as processing materials.
Secondly, the shelf life of the finished pellets sold in the market is generally about 30 days. It is best not to store them for a long time. If the pellets are processed by themselves, they should be fully dried and then stored in bags.
Third, in the case of self-processing pellet feed, an appropriate amount of mold remover can be added for adsorption of mold and mycotoxins.
Fourth, the feed should be stored in a dry and cool place.
Fifth, the remaining material in the trough should be cleaned before each feeding, so as to avoid mildewing due to long-term residual material.
