Soya bean hulls are a highly digestible fibre source

Nutritional Benefits

+

-

Soya bean hulls are a highly digestible fibre source. They can replace both the fibre and some of the grain portion of the diet due to their energy level and digestibility. In diets where forage is being consumed Soya Bean Hulls can have a positive impact on forage intake and digestibility.

Feeding Recommendations

+

-

Soya Bean Hulls can be fed from 0.5 - 5 kg per cow per day. At higher levels of intake (greater than 3kg/day) adequate fibre must be provided and a mineral supplement containing an ionophore such as Rumensin or Bovatec to prevent bloat is recommended.
