The present objective was done for investigate the ameliorative feeding effect of Lactuca sativa
and alfalfa on growth performance and reproductive parameters (concentration of hormones, characteristic of sperm epididymal in adult male rabbits). Twelve adult male rabbits were divided randomly in to two groups. Control group (G1) animals feeding on alfalfa (1kg/day/animal) for 6 weeks. Group Two (G2) this group feeding on head lettuce (1kg/day/animal) for 6 weeks. The result revealed significantly increase in serum testosterone, LH and FSH concentration and significantly differences were observed in sperm concentration, viability, abnormality and decrease significantly in motility of sperm in group feeding on head lettuce compared to the group feeding on alfalfa.
