Our “Canola meal as a feed ingredient for lactating dairy cows: A review” was published in the September edition of the international journal Advances in Dairy Research. This 12-page review, authored by Essi Evans, Essi Evans Technical Advisory Services Inc., and Brittany Wood, Canola Council of Canada, is intended to serve as a comprehensive guide to the use of canola meal.
This review summarizes information on palatability, protein and amino acid value, digestibility and energy, fatty acid composition and micronutrient profiles. In addition, results from all recent early and mid-lactation trials are tabulated for easy evaluation. Findings regarding canola meal’s ability to reduce greenhouse gas output is also included in the review.
