A note on the effect of triacylglycerols of caprylic and capric fatty acid on performance, mortality, and digestibility of nutrient in young rabbits
|Kateg. publikace||Vědecké publikace impaktované|
Two experiments, an apparent digestibility trial and a feeding experiment, were carried out to evaluate the effect of medium-chain fatty acids supplied as triacylglycerols to a diet of growing rabbits. Hyplus rabbits weaning at the age of 35 day were used. In the digestibility trial 20 rabbits were housed individually, in the feeding experiment 216 rabbits were housed four per cage. Rabbits of experimental groups received a diet supplemented with Akomed R. Coefficient of total tract apparent digestibility of dry matter, N-free extract and ash was higher, respectively, in rabbits fed the diet with Akomed R than in control rabbits. Digestibility of other dietary components, the rate of growth, feed intake and carcass yield were not significantly affected. In the feeding experiment, mortality of treated rabbits was significantly lower than of control rabbits.
