Efficacy of hydrothermal reactors, enzymes and additives to increase the utilization and safety of canola meal for livestock
Researcher: Tom Scott, Andrew Van Kessel, Denise Beaulieu, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon SK
Project Code: CUP SCDC/ADF 2011.30 Scott
Final Report: December 2016
Summary: As canola production in western Canada continues to increase, one of the remaining obstacles to maximizing investments is generating significant value from the meal, particularly as an animal protein source. Researchers at the University of Saskatchewan designed a study to evaluate how canola meal could be further treated using hydrothermal processing to increase the value and safety of canola meal and make it more competitive as a feed ingredient. Further research is required to facilitate pre-digestion and how this can be managed without excess cost.
