Canola co-products for feeding pigs

Description

Canola cold-pressed, expeller-pressed or solvent extracted. What is the difference among these products, and why should it matter to pork producers? After more than 30 years, pork producers have become familiar with feeding conventional canola meal. But in recent years, new terms have emerged that refer to novel canola co-products for animal feeding. Producers may wonder what these terms mean and what the differences are among co-products. And for the bottom line, excellent buying opportunities exist when shopping for canola co-products to increase profit margins and reduce feed costs.
