Rapeseed Expeller

Rapeseed Expeller is a high energy, hot pressed rapeseed expeller supplying significantly higher energy (~10%) and post rumen protein digestibility than rape seed meal extract due to higher retained rumen friendly oil and avoidance of the heat used in the recovery of hexane used in extracted meals. This is a different to ‘cold’ pressed rape seed meal which, in the absence of heat, does not de-activate the enzyme myrosinase that breaks down glucosinolates to anti-nutritive factors that reduce performance.

What are you trying to achieve?

 Need

Feature

Benefit

Drive intakes

A source of high quality protein, superior to soya and matched amino acid profile to milk protein, in a palatable form

Ruminants will increase intake to provide energy to match the additional supply of amino acids in rapeseed expeller.

Reduce feed costs

A higher energy and amino acid digestibility than rape seed meal extract

Allows performance to be maintained while reducing the overall protein need saving feed costs

Increase milk yield / growth rate

A higher energy and amino acid digestibility than rape seed meal extract

Increased milk yield or live weight gain

Flexibility in feeding

Dry and free-flowing meal, suitable for wide range of uses for many classes of livestock

Simplifies feeding and storage

Additional information

Method of production

Rapeseed Expeller is produced at a new state of the art rapeseed expelling facility, where whole rape seeds are heated and pressed to expel the oil without the use of a hexane solvent. Recovery of hexane solvent using heat has been shown to reduce protein digestibility, is not used in the manufacture of Rapeseed Expeller.

Quality Assurance

Rapeseed Expeller is a FEMAS assured fully traceable, product, marketed by Trident Feeds – a UFAS accredited merchant. Rapeseed Expeller is listed under Rapeseed expeller feed number 2.14.6 in the EU Catalogue of Feed Materials.

Legal disclaimer

Suggested feeding rates are produced as a guide only and many other factors may have an overriding effect on animal response; no performance guarantee can be given. Rations should be carefully balanced for energy and protein, contain sufficient forage to maintain rumen function and be fortified with an appropriate vitamin and mineral supplement. Animals must have constant access to clean water.
