The principle of raising and management of wool rabbit is basically the same as that of general rabbit.
1、 Feeding of Angora rabbit
1. Feeding and hair growth characteristics of Angora rabbits
The intake of wool rabbit varies with the period of wool collection (generally once every three months) and the growth of wool. One month after wool collection, the intake of wool rabbit is very large. Because the rabbit's body hair is short or naked, a large number of body heat is emitted, and a large amount of energy needs to be added. After two months, the rabbit's hair has grown to a certain length, which is the stage of rapid growth of rabbit's hair, so it is necessary to ensure that the rabbit has enough to eat Good; 3 months later, when the hair grows to a certain length, it begins to grow slowly. At this time, the intake of the rabbit is correspondingly reduced. Therefore, when raising the wool rabbit, carefully adjust the feed according to the different stages after the wool collection and the change rule of the intake.
2. Feeding methods of Angora rabbit
The breeders usually master two feeding methods: one is to feed 190-210g dry feed to each rabbit (adult) one month after plucking, 170-180g dry feed to each rabbit (adult) two months, 140-150g dry feed to each rabbit three months; the other is to feed at will within one month after plucking, and feed at fixed time and quantity two months later.
In France and Germany, rabbits are fed one day a week to empty their stomachs, which greatly reduces the risk of hair ball formation due to the accumulation of hair in their stomachs.
Scientific feeding according to the picking cycle is beneficial to the health of rabbits and the growth of wool, and more fine wool can be obtained.
2、 Management of Angora rabbit
After plucking, the body of the hairy rabbit is bare. In summer, direct sunlight should be prevented. In winter, it should be kept warm and nutrition should be properly increased. The female rabbit should not be sheared near the time of delivery, so as to avoid the influence of the nutrition on the development of the fetus. The hair picking time of female rabbit can be arranged before mating, and the hair is still short at delivery, which is convenient for sucking. At ordinary times, the hair should be combed regularly, the grass dust and feces should be removed in time to prevent the hair ball disease caused by eating the rabbit hair, and the scabies of the rabbit should be treated and isolated in time.
