Abstract

The aim of the experiment was to analyse the effects of the lighting schedule on the rabbit does' production. The does were randomly housed in 2 rooms at the age of 11 wk. In the 1 st room, a continuous 16 h light period was applied (8:00-24:00) (16L:8D, control group; n60 does, 239 parturitions). In the 2 nd room, an 8 h light period was used (8:00-16:00) which was extended by an additional 1 h light period in the middle of the 16 h long dark period (23:00-24:00) 8 d prior to insemination (8L:7D:1L:8D, treated group; n59 does, 223 parturitions). The experiment was finished after 5 reproductive cycles. Significant differences (P
