Abstract: The population of New Zealand White rabbits was evaluated for its genetic structure and growth performance. Data on pedigree information for 18 years (1995- 2012) and growth for 15 years (1998-2012), collected from records maintained at the Sheep Breeding Research Station, Sandynallah, The Nilgiris were utilized for the study. The different growth traits studied were body weights at weaning (W42), post- Weaning (W70) and marketing (W135) age and growth efficiency traits víz., average daily gain (ADG), relative growth rate (RGR) and Kleiber ratio (KR) estimated on a daily basis at different age intervals from weaning to marketing.
