The results of research on histological and chemical structure of the m. Longissimus dorsi of young rabbit of breeds White Giant, White New Zealand, Flemish Giant and multibreed hybrid is presented. Breed specificity of forming of muscle fibers of experimental groups is determined. Hybrid rabbits have an increase of part of parenchyma component, and growth activity of muscle component is most intensive by comparison to initial breeds. Therefore, it is recommended to use the hybrids for improving the meat production performance.
