Abstract

Poultry viscera meal (PVM) in place of fishmeal at 5 and 8 per cent level was used in feed pellets with an objective of its effect on wool traits in Angora rabbits. It was observed that wool yield per shear (g) and fiber length (cm) in Group III (8 per cent fishmeal replacement) were significantly (p≤0.05) higher (97.57±0.69 and 6.71±0.14) than control Group I (91.28±0.53 and 6.06±0.12), respectively. Other quality traits like moisture percent, moisture regain per cent, ash content, fiber diameter (microns), fiber strength (g), specific gravity and pH were not significantly (p≤0.05) different among control and treatments. The study indicated that PVM could be safely included in Angora rabbit diets by replacing fishmeal with better results for wool production.
