Summary:  In this study it was determined that weaned pigs prefer soybean meal to canola. However, weaned piglets also had preference when considering different species of canola. When comparing Brassica juncea canola meal to Brassica napus canola meal it was determined that weaned piglets prefer Brassica napus over Brassica juncea. This study also demonstrated that although the pigs preferred the soybean meal, feeding canola meal did not influence feed intake or overall growth performance. All in all, this study concluded that canola meal can be used as a effective alternative to soybean meal.
