  A study was carried out to determine the intake and utilization of Mango leaf meal by growing rabbits. Twenty cross weaned rabbits of average weight 700 g were randomly assigned to the five iso-nitrogenous and iso-caloric diets in which wheat offal was substituted at 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100%. The results showed that rabbits weight reduced significantly (p<0.05) across the dietary treatments. Weight gain and feed intake were affected significantly (p<0.05) by the treatment imposed on the rabbits. Dry matter digestibility, ash and crude fibre digestibility were affected across the treatment. Carcass evaluation values were significantly influenced by the treatment except the kidney. The cost kg-1 diet (^) decreased significantly as the level of dietary inclusion of Mango leaf meal increased from 0 to 100%. At the end of the study the highest savings on feed to produce kg-1 was obtained in the group which consumed 100% mango leaf meal diet. This was closely followed by rabbits on 75, 50 and 25%. It was therefore concluded that Mango leaf meal can be fed to weaner rabbits up to 50% level without any adverse effect on performance variables.

  Twenty four hybrid weaner rabbits of both sexes were used to evaluate the usefulness of malted sorghum sprout. The rabbits were randomly allotted to four dietary groups of 6 rabbits and three replicates of 2 rabbits each. The MSP was incorporated into the diet at 0, 10, 20 and 30% levels. The experiment lasted for 56 days. Feed and water were supplied ad libitum. The performance characteristics, nutrient utilization, carcass characteristics and economics of production were measures of response. The result showed that, the final live weight and daily weight gain of rabbits on 0 and 20% MSP diets were highest (p<0.05). The daily feed intake of rabbits on MSP diets were significantly (p<0.05) lower than those on 0% MSP. The dry matter, crude protein and crude fibre digestibility significantly declined (p<0.05) as the level of MSP inclusion increases. Energy intake and energy retained followed a similar trend. Carcass weight, liver, kidney and heart weights were significantly (p<0.05) influenced by the dietary treatment. Less cost was incurred in producing a kilogram of rabbit when fed 20 and 30% MSP levels. 20% level of inclusion in rabbit diet could be of benefit in terms cost reduction and better growth.
