To bulk up livestock and increase their food production qualities, they need to be fed a nutritious diet. Dairy animals have neds that are quite different to the other livestock and so they are normally fed a diet rich in energy and protein. The main source of protein for dairy cattle is oilseed such as sunflower seeds.
Sunflower meal, which is also reffered to as sunflower oilcake, is a powerful protein source for cattle as it is both economically and biologically the better choice. Sunflower meal is the by-product of the oil extraction process. The process involves the of grinding flakes which remain after oil has been removed by either solvent or mechanical extraction processes.
Oil is the majority value of the sunflower seed and sunflower meal is considered a by-product which has a major protein meal source which is primarily used for feed in cattle or livestock and other animal feed. This by-product is known as Sunflower Cake Animal Feed and it is an excellent livestock animal feed. The use of this low-cost sunflower animal cake feed, the specifications of which are high in protein, fibre and fat, has been somewhat frowned upon. Due to the increased production of sunflower oil, the market for sunflower meal for sale has grown as the need for this by-product increases, with a very favourable sunflower meal price per tonne rating.
