Flax seed meal (FSM) is rich in various nutrients, especially CP and energy, and can be used as animal protein feed. In animal husbandry production, it is a long-term goal to replace soybean meal (SBM) in animal feed with other plant protein feed. However, studies on the effects of replacing SBM with FSM in fattening sheep are limited. The aim of this experiment was to study the effects of replacing a portion of SBM with FSM on nutrient digestibility, rumen microbial protein synthesis and… 

Replacing soybean meal with high-oil pumpkin seed cake in the diet of lactating Holstein dairy cows modulated rumen bacteria and milk fatty acid profile.

This research aimed to investigate the effects of replacing soybean meal with high-oil pumpkin seed cake (HOPSC) on ruminal fermentation, lactation performance, milk fatty acid, and ruminal bacterial

In Vitro Fermentation Characteristics of Camelina Meal Comparison with Soybean Meal

Soybean meal (SBM) is commonly used in livestock nutrition as an attractive protein source of plant origin in the world, although its high price. In ruminants that costs don’t compete with the humans

Sea Buckthorn and Grape Extract Might Be Helpful and Sustainable Phyto-Resources as Associated Hypolipidemic Agents—Preliminary Study

Phytotherapy can enhance the beneficial health outcomes in the prevention of obesity and is able to improve the function of the metabolic organs, like the liver and kidneys. Since sea buckthorn (SBT)

Impact of Microwave Thermal Processing on Major Grain Quality Traits of Linseed (Linum usitatissium L.)

The current study investigated the effects of thermal processing of the microwave technology on nutritive value, crude protein solubility, urease activity and amino acid profile on linseed grains.

Associations of Protein Molecular Structures with Their Nutrient Supply and Biodegradation Characteristics in Different Byproducts of Seed-Used Pumpkin

Simple Summary At present, the world is faced with a shortage and rising prices of high-quality protein feed. Adequate utilization of unconventional feeds can alleviate this problem. China is the



Nutrient digestibility, rumen microbial protein synthesis, and growth performance in sheep consuming rations containing sea buckthorn pomace.

The results indicated that SBP can be incorporated in the ration of ram lambs and improve MP supply and ADG, however, high content of it in the diet was adverse for nutrient digestibility.

Live performance, carcass yield, protein and energy retention of broiler chickens fed canola and flax full-fat seeds and the restored mixtures of meal and oil

Two experiments were conducted to assess the use, in broiler diets, of full-fat canola and flax seed or their restored mixtures of seed meals and oils. The first experiment compared raw and heated

Nitrogen utilization, nutrient digestibility, and excretion of purine derivatives in dairy cattle consuming rations containing corn milling co-products.

Feeding modified wet distillers grains with solubles and wet corn gluten feed in combination reduces some of the negative effects of feeding WDGS alone, and compared with the ration containing WDGS, the ration with a 30% mixture of WDGS and WCGF improved nutrient digestibility and N utilization with reduced manure N excretion and increased N retention.

Dietary camelina meal versus flaxseed with and without supplemental copper for broiler chickens: live performance and processing yield.

Results from the present study demonstrated that either 10% camelina meal or 10% flaxseed diets will reduce broiler BW when fed the first 3 wk of life, however, birds fed the camelina diet responded to Cu sulfate supplementation with improved live performance and carcass characteristics.

Nutrient digestibility, egg quality, and fatty acid composition of brown laying hens fed camelina or flaxseed meal

In general, inclusion of camelina and flax meal reduced CP digestibility and AMEn while increasing egg production in brown layers, and feeding CAM10 or FLAX10 resulted in higher egg production.

Crushed sunflower, flax, or canola seeds in lactating dairy cow diets: effects on methane production, rumen fermentation, and milk production.

The study shows that adding sources of long-chain fatty acids to the diet in the form of processed oilseeds can be an effective means of reducing methane emissions, however, for someOilseeds such as SS or FS, the reduction in methane can be at the expense of diet digestibility.

Effects of dietary forage sources on rumen microbial protein synthesis and milk performance in early lactating dairy cows.

It is indicated that corn stover could replace Chinese wild rye grass in the diets for lactating cows and that a high proportion of alfalfa hay in the diet is beneficial for milk protein production by increasing microbial protein yield.

The effect of protein source on the performance of suckling Chios ewes and Damascus goats

Two trials, one with 36 twin-suckling Chios ewes and the other with 32 twin-suckling Damascus goats, were conducted to study the effect of protein source (fish meal v . soya-bean meal) on the
