Title: Estimation of grass biomass consumed by rabbits housed in movable paddocks
Author: Plagnet, Anne-Sophie Bannelier, Carole Fillon, Valerie Savietto, Davi
Issued date:
Abstract:
[EN] Biomass allowance is a key feature in pasture-based rabbit production systems. It conditions not only the stock density (rabbits/m²) and/or the number of grazing days, it also influences the grazing behaviour of ...[+]
