Feature

Benefit

Rumen degradable protein

Approximately two thirds of Rapeseed Meal protein is rumen degradable.

Excellent and cost effective protein complement to low protein forages.

Increase milk yield

A good source of high quality protein and rumen by-pass protein.

Allows the cow to maximise milk production.

Increase milk protein yield and liveweight gain

Provides the building blocks to drive milk protein synthesis, increasing value per litre and per cow as well as lean liveweight gain.

Flexibility in feeding

Wide range of uses for many classes of livestock.

Simplifies feeding.

The predicted responses (benefits) assume that the specified nutrient, physical or structural dietary components are limiting livestock performance in the current ration.

Availability, handling and storage

Rapeseed Extract is available all year round, UK wide, as bulk tipped loads. Like all dry feeds, they should be stored in a secure shed, bunker, bin or hopper and kept cool, dry and free from vermin.

Additional information

Method of production

Whole Rapeseed is pre-cleaned, dried, flaked, cooked and pressed to remove the majority of oil, followed by a solvent extraction to remove most of the residual oil. The solvent is then removed, leaving a friable high protein meal.

Quality Assurance

Rapeseed Extract is a FEMAS-assured (or recognised equivalent) and marketed by KW Alternative Feeds a UFAS-accredited merchant. Rapeseed Meal is listed under number 2.14.3 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.
