Rabbit meat production situation in Egypt 1994

Yamani K.A.O.

A report paper is prepared to throw light on the meat rabbit production situation in 1994 in Egypt as a continuation of reporting about this issue in the 5th World Rabbit Congress, Corvallis, USA by Kamar and Yamani (1992). The report includes the research work activities in the universities and institutes. The industrial meat rabbit production at San El-Hagar project, Egyptian-Italian project and the other medium size projects in the private; investment, and cooperative and extension service sectors were also included. The small scale rabbit farms were negotiated to indicate further studies and to carry out a statistical survey for its proportion as small units relatively to the total production and to the industrial meat rabbit production as well. Evaluation of the recently introduced meat rabbit breeds or strains for the growth performance and the performance of some doe traits was recorded for Bauscat, California and New Zealand White breeds in San El-Hagar rabbit project (10300 does), Hyla rabbits (400 does) in the Egyptian-Italian project, Salheya under intensive production system, in both projects. The Green line (GL) rabbits introduced from Polytechnique University, Valencia, Spain, was compared with the NZW and Cal. in the rabbitry of Faculty of Agriculture, Zagazig University, under semi-intensive production system. The Bauscat at San El-Hagar project and the Green Line at Zagazig University proved better performance than NZW and Cal. The Hyla rabbits showed good feed conversion ratio (less than 3:1) and popular marketing weight (1.860 kg live weight) at 10 week old as commercial fattening broiler rabbits.
