This study was conducted at Brgy. Palasan, Sta Cruz, Laguna on November 16, to February 23, 2022 to determine the performance of rabbit using different treatment in the ration. Specifically, it aimed determined the significant effect of different ration salvinia and gotu kola in the growth performance of rabbit in terms of average daily gain, weekly gain, and body weight. Feed conversion ratio and production income of rabbit production. An experimental research in completely randomized design (CRD) was used in this study. Four treatments were used: Treatment 1 control, Treatment 2 fed with 60g salvinia, Treatment 3 fed with 60g gotu kola and Treatment 4 combination of 30g fed salvinia and 30g fed gotu kola. Each treatment replicates four times. Data on feed conversion, body weight, average daily gain and weekly gain weight was analyzed with Analysis of Variance test at Statistical Tool for Agricultural Research (STAR) application. Based on the result, the study showed that week 6 has significant effect while week 7 shows that there highly significant result on body weight, There was significant effect of treatment on the average daily gain on rabbit observed from week 6 and based on the data collected, there was significant effect on rabbit weight gain from week 6 and based on the data gathered there was highly significant effect on the feed conversion ratio of rabbits from week 6. In production income must be high at Treatment 2 fed with (Salvinia) than Treatment 1 (Control) fed with rabbit commercial feed only. Therefore, salvinia and gotu kola could be utilized for rabbit as good source of fiber, reduced the feeding cost decrease in the concentrated portion of the diets, which is the most expensive for rabbit production. Sensory analysis result show that the most accepted meat in terms or general acceptability same result, and all treatment show the least acceptable in appearance, taste, juiciness, texture, aroma and tenderness.
