Flemish giant rabbit and New Zealand white rabbits (group ON), were used as a material for the study.
Rabbits were fed ad libitum with commercial pelleted feed, with the addition of small amounts of green feed
and hay. The experiment included 6 rabbits, 3 males and 3 females. Previously defined live weight of 1800
to 2500 g was achieved within 77 days and after that they were slaughtered. Study results presented in this
paper show fattening and slaughter properties of Flemish giant rabbit and New Zealand white rabbit. The
achieved average weight of male rabbits was 2792 g and meat-to-bone ratio was 47.92%, 2597 g and 48.61%
respectively in female rabbits. Average participation of the back part of the carcass in male/female rabbits was
28.02% and 27.34%, dorsal part was 20.93% and 22.65%, front of the carcass was 25.26% and 25.39%.
