Title : Effect of Grind Seeds of Rosemary and / or Chamomile Dietary Supplementation in Local Male Rabbits Exposed to Heat Stress on Some Productive and Physiological Parameters

Abstract :

Heat stress now become so important global issue in man as well as in animal due to high elevation in climate temperatures in all over the world, such problem is formed a difficult economical challenge, due to direct bad effects on animal production in all farm animals so, Current study was conducted to determine the effects of Rosemary and Chamomile Dietary Supplementation in domestic male rabbits under heat stress on some productive and physiological parameters. Thirty-five male white local rabbits was used in this experiment and were randomly divided into five groups 7 in each one, first group put in normal suitable climate condition based diet without addition and kept as negative control group, the other three groups was kept under heat stress 29.5- 30°C and 70-80 relative humidity in the animal house with a period of 12 hours light/dark condition, the first one was regarded as control positive group. The second group offered the basal diet including 3% grind rosemary leafs while the third group was fed same basal diet including 3% grind dry chamomile flowers, the fourth group was fed mixed diet (6%) including 3% grind dry chamomile flowers and 3% grind rosemary leafs and will be under heat stress 29.5 - 30°C and 70-80 relative humidity in the animal house. The results showed that there were a significant (P≤0.05) decrease in feed intake, body weight, Glutathione redact and serum Globulin in the rabbit group that was under heat stress and there is no significant change between other group .in the other hand there was a significant increase (P≤0.05) in Alkaline phosphatase activity enzymes (ALP) and serum Cortisol in the rabbit group that was under heat stress and there is no significant change between other group.
