The updated “Canola Meal Feeding Guide” should be your go-to resource.
October 15, 2015 – As livestock nutritionists expand their ration formulation options to develop the best rations possible based on current research, many may have questions about canola meal as a protein ingredient.
These questions may include:
- What is the nutrient profile of canola meal?
- What is the recommended inclusion level for different species?
- How does the protein degradation of canola meal in the rumen impact milk production?
The answers to these questions, and more, can be found in the 5th edition of the “Canola Meal Feeding Guide," published by the Canola Council of Canada (CCC). Last updated in 2009, this comprehensive resource for nutritionists was recently updated to provide current information on feeding canola meal to different livestock species and represents the latest findings from recent industry research studies. Copies of the feed guide are available as a PDF online. Printed copies will be available at trade shows and by request.
The Canola Meal Feeding Guide is just one of many resources available at the newly revamped Canolamazing.com. A one-stop, go-to resource for anyone with questions about canola meal and its applications in livestock feed, the website includes recent research, a dairy feed calculator for protein ingredient options and canola feeding information for multiple livestock species.
Canola meal is a coproduct of the canola oil crushing process, and is approximately 36 percent crude protein with a considerable portion of that protein bypassing the rumen — as high or higher than many other common protein sources. Visit Canolamazing.com to learn more.
The CCC is a full value chain organization representing canola growers, processors, life science companies and exporters. Keep it Coming 2025 is the strategic plan to ensure the canola industry’s continued growth, demand, stability and success – achieving 52 bushels per acre to meet global market demand of 26 million metric tonnes by the year 2025.
