Protein Feeds

Canola Meal

Canola Meal is a by-product of canola seed oil production.

Feeding Recommendations

The benefits of Canola Meal are best captured in a balanced feed ration and normally feeding rates for dairy cows are 0.5-2kg DM per day. In grain mixes inclusion rates range from 10-30%.

Canola Meal is best fed as part of a customised feed blend in the shed. Feed as required when protein is limiting production.

Note: Consult your milk supply company for FEI guidelines





Crude protein






Nutritional Benefits

Canola contains 30-35% rumen undegradable (bypass) protein and the other 65-70% is degraded in the rumen. This is quite similar to the protein fraction in Soya Bean Meal. Therefore, Canola works well in diets that are low in rumen degradable protein, e.g. when over 40% of the diet is low protein feeds such as maize silage, whole crop silage, stalky grass silage or grain. GM free option available.

Cattle Feed Storage on Farm

As with any grain or meal feed products need to be kept dry as moisture combined with heat can cause fungi to grow. Common on farm storage methods are: in a shed or unused fertiliser bin; in a covered pit; on a concrete pad; or in a cutting, covered with plastic sheet and tyres. Most feed should be used reasonably expediently (within 40 - 50 days). The longer you plan to store feed products the better your storage facilities need to be.
