The Moshtohor Rabbit breed was developed as a cross between the Gabali and V lines. This line had superior growth and prolificacy. The crosses between the V line and Gabali red rabbits showed differences in direct additive effects. The V line achieved gains of 15.0% at four weeks and 12.3% at twelve weeks and daily gains of up to seven grams per week. This breed is popular among rabbit farmers and pet owners alike.

The Alexandria Rabbit Line originated in Alexandria, Egypt, a city rich in grain and fruit. It was a center of trade for nearly a millennium. Its canal provided fresh water and transport from the rich interior of the country. It also provided skilled labor. Alexandria’s canal made the city a thriving trading center.

Discover the Vibrant Coats of Moshtohor Rabbits

The Moshtohor Rabbit breed has a unique set of colors. Its ears are tri-colored and have a black border. The inner part of the ear is bluish. The rest of the body is a pale brown color. These animals also have a tri-color tail.
Adult Rabbits weigh around two kilograms (4.5 pounds). Kits are born in cream or black color. Their coats develop silver ticking as they grow older. They can be cream, slate light, or dark silver. They are docile and make good pets.
The Moshtohor rabbit, also known as Line M, is a small breed that originates from Egypt. The Moshtohor breed was developed from the Egyptian Sinai Gabali rabbit and the V-Line. They can grow to be between 39 and 46 centimeters long. Moshtohors are kept in a special rabbitry farm.
The Moshtohor Rabbit breed comes in a range of colors. It can be pure color or spotted and comes in a range of different patterns. Their ears can be erect or lop. They are easy to care for and can survive harsh conditions.

Are Synthetic Lines the Key to Profitable Moshtohor Rabbit Farming?

The use of synthetic lines is not a new practice, but there is a growing demand for genetically pure lines for meat production. Many private companies sell market animals for this purpose. These lines can be used to produce meat and other products that are not possible with the traditional breeding methods.
One of the synthetic lines is the Moshtohor Rabbit, which was developed in Israel. The breed is derived from the founder lines of the Gabali and Spanish V lines. The researchers evaluated the genetic diversity of these lines using sixteen microsatellite markers. The genetic data was compared with the FGP, an outgroup breed. The average values for NO, HO, He, FIS, and FIS were 6.75. The highest values for Ho, He, and FIS were recorded in the M-line.
Saudi-2 and Saudi-3 rabbits were similar to one another in carcass traits and pre-slaughter weight. The Saudi-3 rabbits were slightly heavier than their counterparts. They were similar in terms of carcass traits and tissue composition. The Saudi-1 lines were also superior in terms of weight. The animals had higher pre-slaughter, hot carcass, and offal weights than the other two genetic groups.
In order to improve the genetic diversity of the breed, various research programs have been conducted in different countries. In France, the National Institute for Agricultural Research in Toulouse started a program in 1969, and in Spain, the National Institute of Agricultural Research in Spain (IRTA) started in 1992. The French institute has developed several maternal lines and the synthetic multi-purpose line Pannon White, and the Spanish research institute has developed the maternal and paternal lines LP, SCR, and Caldes. The University of Zaragoza in Spain has also produced a multipurpose line, Gigante de Espa (57).
The multi-purpose lines are selected for growth and reproductive traits. Some were selected based on weight at slaughter, litter size, and computer tomography measurements, while others were selected for the average daily gain. The problem with this method is that the selection is costly and requires long generation intervals.

Unraveling the Gender Mystery of the Moshtohor Rabbit

A buck can recognize a doe by observing the doe’s behavior. For instance, a doe in heat will be restless and rub her chin against objects. She will also have a vulva that is slightly swollen and reddish or purplish in color. If this vulva is small or pale, the doe is not ready for breeding. In addition, a doe may lift her tail when touched.
This breed is also known for its prolific breeding habits. One litter can produce as many as seven to eight young. Depending on the type of breeding, the litter size can be smaller or larger. A female rabbit can also produce up to six litters a year.
While most rabbits are kept together, some raisers prefer to keep a buck and a doe separately. It is best to avoid mating a doe when she is sick or nursing a large litter. However, it is not recommended to mat a doe less than seven weeks old. This will increase the odds of a small litter and may even reduce the number of problems.
Once the breeding process has begun, you will need to find a place for the two rabbits to mate. A good place to do this is in the buck’s cage. A doe may refuse to mate if it is not comfortable with a buck. A buck will need some time to settle down but will usually adapt if the doe is assisted.
