Meat quality of mongrel rabbits and the crosses of the California and New Zealand white breeds
Summary.

The aim of the study was to determine the carcasses and meat quality of mongrel rabbits not belonging to any breeds and crosses of the California and New Zealand White breeds. Material consisted of carcasses of 25 rabbits, of which 16 were mongrels and 9 were the crossbreeds of California (KA) and New Zealand White (NB) breeds, with a similar share of males and females in groups. The study showed that KA×NB rabbits had a higher meat share and a lower bone share in carcasses compared to the mongrel rabbits. Crossbreed rabbits (KA×NB) also had a higher pH48 value in the longissimus lumborum, as well as in the leg muscles, which resulted in a darker colour (L*) of muscles, higher water holding capacity and higher water-soluble protein content. In addition, the muscles of KA×NB rabbits had a higher dry matter content, including intramuscular fat, total protein and ash, which resulted in higher calculated energy value.

Key words: rabbits, meatiness, meat quality, chemical composition
