Canola – Meal

New Zealand grown and crushed oilseed crop, therefore is GE Free and of low biosecurity risk. The meal is competitively priced against other protein supplements, with short and long term pricing options available.

It contains high levels of metabolisable (13 Mj/kg+) digestible and net energy, it’s suitable to feed through a variety of grain and meal feed systems and can be supplied in chip or milled form.

Canola Meal

The dairy farmer values canola meal for its rumen degradable and undegradable protein. The undegraded (or “bypass”) fraction is the most critical as it supplies essential amino acids for absorption in the small intestines which pushes production levels forward.

Canola meal also provides a significant energy advantage in the form of sugars and residual oil which is not fermented as quickly in the ruminant following appropriate heat treatments. A good balance of fibre (ADF and NDF) encourages microbial activity in the ruminant.

  • Protein solubility of the cold pressed meal is high and therefore suitable for ruminant and monogastrics.
  • Lower extraction temperatures of cold pressing process leaves amino acids such as lysine at higher levels as compared to solvent extracted meal.
  • Cold pressing process leave higher residual fat levels in the meal increasing the energy value of the meal.
  • A good source of minerals compared with other oilseed meals. Particularly rich in phosphorus, which is important for production and fertility.
  • Benefits of canola meal are best captured in a balanced feed ration.
  • Glucosinolates levels within the oilseed rape varieties (and canola meal) are not considered anti-nutritional for livestock.

Canola meal is best fed when diets are low in rumen degradable
protein, which is often when low protein feeds like maize silage
are being fed. Canola meal is not recommended as a free
access feed. It should be introduced gradually in a controlled
or monitored feeding regime to allow the rumen to adapt
accordingly.

Like all feedingstuffs, canola meal should be stored dry, in bulk bins or placed on cement slabs (away from vermin and protected from the weather.
