An experiment was carried out to evaluate the effect of useful microbes-bokashi addition to the diet on the weight gains of rabbits. In total, 20 weaned rabbits (30 days old) of crossbred were divided at random among two groups (experimental and control) at the rate of 10 young rabbits per group. Rabbits in control group (C) were fed with a commercially available pellet, while the experimental group (UM-B) received a commercially available pellet mix with 5% useful microbes-bokashi (useful microbes in the form of granules). At 70 days old, the average live weights of rabbits were 726.0 g and 762.0 g in respectively, C and UM-B groups. At the end of the trial (150 days old), the highest average live weight was observed in the experimental group (UM-B; 1495.0 g) when compared to the control (C; 1470.0 g). In conclusion, the supplementation of useful microbes-bokashi at 5% in the rabbit’s diet showed a positive effect on weight gains in rabbits.
