Dehulled Canola Meal for Growing-Finishing Pigs – monograph

Posted in: Nutrition, Pork Insight Articles by PSCI on July 14, 2017


The major restriction to expanded use of canola meal in swine diets is its low level of energy digestibility. There are many approaches that one might take to address this problem, but in this series of experiments, mechanical dehulling was considered as one possible alternative. Therefore, two experiments were conducted to evaluate the acceptability of dehulled canota meal to swine and to detennine the perfonnance of growing and finishing pigs using this product to replace at least half of the soybean meal in their diet. The acceptabilit)’ study revealed some problems with the product, as the pigs reduced feed intake in approximate proportionate to the quantity of dehulled canota meal in the diet. In the perfonnance study, the pigs perfonned very well on the diets containing dehulled canota meal, suggesting that the product can be used successfully in swine diets. Dehulled canota meal has considerable promise in the pig industry, if the dehulling process is economical and can produce a uniform product. Because there appears to be a tendency to concentrate certain anti-nutritional factors in the low fibre fraction, care must be taken to ensure that this is minimised
