Neiker-Tecnalia study use of oilseedrape and sunflower oils to produce fuel and feed for herds

Applications in animal feed

Nutritional composition and nutritive value are two fundamental values for evaluating any food for inclusion in the diet of farm animals. The cake obtained from mechanical procedures (which are those available to farmers) has a larger content of fatty material than that obtained by industrial procedures with additional chemicals. Moreover, they provide better information on the traceability of the protein destined for animal feed. The cake obtained on the farm by simple cold pressing of the seeds has between 11 and 33 % of fatty material per kilo; the industrial cake provides only between 2 and 3 %.

At the Neiker-Tecnalia laboratories various samples of rape-cake from the Basque Country were analysed. These samples obtained between 16 and 22 % of fatty material per kilo and between 25 and 27 % of protein per kilo of cake, values which are of great nutritional interest.

Rape-cake and sunflower-cake are, moreover, rich in linoleic and linolenic acids, essential fatty acids and precursors of the Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acid families. Sheep fed with this material show a profile of fatty acids with enhanced nutritional qualities.

Moreover, the technological centre is also working on the Laresne project, financed by the Spanish National Institute of Agricultural Research and Technology (INIA) in collaboration with the Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of the Basque Country. Also feeding sheep with this cake fodder is studied as well as its effect on zootechnical parameters and milk quality.
