Abstract: It is impossible to achieve a high level of rabbits’ productivity, maintaining their health and reproductive capacity, without the presence of Selenium. Vegetable fodders, which are traditionally the main component of their rations, contain an insuffi - cient amount of this microelement. Confl icting results of experiments conducted in the world, led to further study of this issue and conducting of scientifi c and economic experiments to establish optimal dose of Selenium for rabbits which are farmed for meat. During the experiment the average daily live weight of rabbits was investigated, as well as the digestion of Selenium in their body and content of Selenium in the blood. Thus, we have found that the optimal dose of Selenium in the fodder mixture for young rabbits is 0.2 mg/kg of dry matter.
