  • Meat Production Performances of Geese in Different Crossbred Combinations

    [Objective] To study the meat production performance of geese in different crossbred combination, and provide a reference for cultivating new multiplication strains of meat geese. [Method] A total of five goose breeds including Taihu goose (T), Wulong goose (WL), Wanxi white goose (WX), Sichuan white goose (SC) and Sanhua goose (SH) were used as research objects, and eight crossbred combinations were designed. The body measurements, slaughter performance, conventional meat quality and muscle composition of 90-day-old geese in eight crossbred combinations were determined and comparatively analyzed. [Result] All the body measurement indexes except thurl width of WXSC combination were the biggest in the eight crossbred combinations. Contrarily, the body measurement indexes of SHSC combination, including average body weight, body slope length, breast depth, breast width, shank length, neck length and half-diving depth were the lowest in the eight crossbred combinations. The live weight, slaughter weight and abdomen fat weight of WXSC combinations ware 3 291.36, 2 956.46 and 77.84 g, respectively, which were the biggest in eight crossbred combinations. The slaughter rate of SHWL combinations was 92.96%, and more than other crossbred combinations. The shear force of SHT and WXWL combinations were the lowest (3.09 kg) and the highest (3.78 kg), respectively. The water holding capacities of SCWL and WXSC combinations were the highest (66.46%) and the lowest (61.48%), respectively. The percentage of moisture content of SHWL and SCT combinations were the highest (73.05%) and the lowest (66.77%), respectively. The crude protein content of SHT and SHWL combinations were the highest (23.32%) and the lowest (21.94%), respectively. The percentage of crude fat content of SHT and SCWL combinations were the highest (3.06%) and the lowest (1.67%), respectively. [Conclusion] The growth rate of WXSC combination is the fastest, and the meat performance of SHT combination is the best.

  • Effects of Diets with Different Corn-to-Soybean Ratios on Performance of Lactational Rex Rabbits

    [Objective] To study the effects of diets with different corn-to-soybean ratios on production performance of lactational Rex rabbits and select the best feed formula. [Method] A total of 80 lactational healthy Rex rabbits (similar age, body weight and delivery time) were randomly divided into five groups, 16 in each group. The Rex rabbits in group I were fed with corn-based meal diet, group II with soybean-based meal diet, group III with the developed corn-soybean meal diet, group IV with corn-soybean meal free diet, and group CK with conventional corn-soybean meal diet. During the lactation period, the changes in the lactation performance, growth rate of baby rabbits, weight and feed costs were observed. [Result] The lactation performance of mother rabbits and the growth rate of baby rabbits in the experimental groups were similar to that in the control group. The weaning survival rate of the group III was the highest, but it was not significantly higher than that of the control group. The weaning survival rate of the other three groups was lower than that of the control group (P<0.05). The weight loss of mother rabbits in the group I, II and III was not significantly different from that of the control group, but the weight loss of the group IV was higher than that of the control group (P<0.01). [Conclusion] Diets with appropriate corn-to-soybean ratios not only reduce feed costs but also give the best feeding effects.

  • Effects of Different Dietary Crude Protein Levels on Reproductive Performance in Breeder Roosters

    [Objective] To investigate effects of different dietary crude protein levels on reproductive performance and find out the optimal additive proportion of crude protein. [Method] A total of 45 New Yangzhou breeder roosters at 21 weeks old were sampled and divided into three groups, namely, low-protein diet group, medium-protein diet group and high-protein diet group. They were fed with diets respectively at crude protein levels of 17.23%, 13.04% and 11.32%. The sperm volume, testicular traits and levels of reproductive hormones were analyzed during the whole reproductive period. [Result] The sperm volume, sperm motility and sperm density of the medium-protein diet group were higher than that of the other two groups, and the sperm deformity rate of the medium-protein diet group was lowest. The rooster′s testicular traits including weight, volume and testis indexes were not significantly affected by different protein levels, but the testis shrank slowly with aging (P<0.05). The levels of testosterone (T), luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicule stimulating hormone (FSH) in plasma were respectively 6.34%, 19.64% and 3.88% higher in the low-protein diet group than in the medium-protein diet group, and these indexes were respectively 7.20%, 17.54% and 9.84% higher in the low-protein diet group than in the high-protein diet group. But all these differences were not significant. [Conclusion] The breeder roosters fed with the diet at the crude protein level of 13.04% show better reproductive performance and economic efficiency.
