Abstract

Research on wool production performance between different lines and strains of Angora rabbit was started at Swine and Avian Research Program(SARP), Khumaltar, Lalitpur since 1994. The high yielding lines of German (G1) and Chinese Angora were introduced at SARP in 1998 from Chitlang Goat Farm of Department of Livestock Services(DLS) and Lumle Agriculture Research Center. Research on wool production performance of German, Chinese, Russian and British strains of Angora rabbit at Khumaltar, Lalitpur was conducted . Based upon the one year data G1 line of German Angora showed significantly (P ≤ 0.05 ) higher wool production( 949.2 + 101g /rabbit /year) than other lines and strains of Angora rabbit . The average annual wool production in Chinese Angora, G2 line of German Angora, Russian Angora and British Angora were 656.2 g, 511g, 349.5 g and 335 g respectively. Similarly, additional improvement on management for existing lines and strains also showed significant (P ≤ 0.05 increase on wool production performance as compared with the result of previous year(G2 line of German 423.125 g to 511 g and British 305 g to 349 g).

Key words: Angora rabbit; F1 generation; wool production.
