Effects of Increased Inclusion of Algae Meal on Lamb Total Tract DigestibilityAnimal Industry Report
Extension NumberASL R3003
Summary and ImplicationsAlgae meal is a novel coproduct created by the unique combination of soybean hulls and oil-extracted heterotrophic micro algae. Algae meal is highly digestible by ruminants and was readily consumed by lambs when included at up to 60% of the diet dry matter. This suggests that algae meal could potentially replace corn or soybean hulls and serve as a valuable component of feedlot diets.
