Camps i Rabadà, Jaume
XXVII Simposium de Cunicultura ASESCU (Mayo 2002 : Tarragona)

Data: 2002
Resum: Through all the years of animal domestication, in all species, a constant trend is shown: the better animal are kept and catered for, the more they produce. Ecologist lobbies are putting pressure on the E. U. legislative bodies arguing that changes on rabbit breeding should be made, specially raising them on the ground, or on bigger cages, in a wrong and antropomorphic tainted version of rabbit bevahiour. Breeding directly on the ground would be counter productive, increase death tolls and stress. Bigger cages would mean higher production costs. Besides it has never been proved excessive additional space would mean higher rabbit comfort levels, moreover the contrary can be said. Rabbit breeders are professionals who perfectly know they have to keep adequate animal comfort levels to reach good productivity levels, and that is what they do. There are 30 million rabbits cages on meat production just in Spain, France and Italy that confrm and endorse this view. Hobby breeding point of view must be separated from functional meat production cages, or needs.
