Rapeseed Meal

Rapeseed Meal provides a good source of rumen degradable protein as well as rumen bypass protein with an amino acid profile beneficially similar to microbial and milk protein.


A high protein, good energy feed used to partially replace soya bean meal, although the protein is less digestible. The meal from industrial crops is usually high in glucosinolate/ erucic acid.


• Approximately two thirds of Rapeseed Meal protein is rumen degradable
• A good source of high-quality protein
• Wide range of uses for many classes of livestock
• NWF use this product to produce Ultra Pro-R due to its consistent physical qual-ity, the proximity of the production sites and its amino acid profile, allowing it to be used to substitute soya when the price ratio encourages this
