  Sixteen weaner rabbits of six weeks old, mixed breeds were fed Rice Milling waste based diets at 0, 25, 50 and 75% levels (replacing maize), respectively. This was done for a period of thirty-five days. The weight gain, feed conversion and protein efficiency ratios of rabbits fed 0% level and 25% level were significantly higher than those of rabbits fed 50 and 75% levels of the experimental diet. 0% and 25% levels do not have any significant difference between them. No mortality was recorded and also no physiological changes were observed throughout the thirty-five days of experiment. The nitrogen retention and crude fibre digestibility of diets fed 0% RMW and 25%RMW were significantly (p<0.05) the same and higher than others. Basically, from the performance data, there were no significance differences between the control diet 0% (RMW) and 25% (RMW) when compared, but there were significant differences when compared with diet 3 (50% RMW) and diet 4 (75% RMW), with diet 4 having the least performance. In terms of costing, diet 4 (75%) was the cheapest, but the least performance, while that of diet 2 (25% RMW) had a better performance and at a reduced cost. It can be concluded that RMW can conveniently be included in a weaner ration at 25% level of inclusion (replacing maize) without any adverse effect.

  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.
