Sunflower meal is a by-product obtained in the production of vegetable oils, after pressing and extracting oilseeds. Pressing is the process by which oil is squeezed out of sunflower seeds. And extraction is the release of residual oil after pressing the seeds with organic solvents. As a result, in the meal after pressing, the residual oil is at the level of 4%, crude protein at the level of 35-36%, amino acids and methionine, which favorably affects the growth and development of young animals. The meal is indispensable as a high-protein additive in the production of animal feed for poultry and livestock. Contains vitamins E and B, fiber, natural proteins, potassium, phosphorus, and other minerals.
In terms of its energy value, sunflower meal is rich in niacin, riboflavin, choline, biotin, pantothenic acid, and pyridoxine. In addition, sunflower meal is an excellent source of vitamin E.

The diet of farm animals should include feed containing a large amount of protein. Otherwise, pigs, cows, etc., will not gain weight well and will start to hurt. As a result, the farm will suffer significant losses.
The value of such granules lies primarily in the fact that they contain proteins that are characterized by very high biological activity. In this regard, rapeseed meal is superior to both sunflower and pea or bean, the most popular among livestock breeders at the moment. The energy value of this type of feed is close to soybean meal.

Sunflower meal has become increasingly important in recent years due to stronger demands from the livestock, dairy, and aquaculture industries.
Sunflower meal for local markets is ground and sold as a “loose” meal, while sunflower meal for export markets is generally pelletized. The main purpose of pelletizing the meal is the increase in bulk density, which thereby reduces the storage and transport cost of the sunflower meal. Pelletizing also increases the physical stability of the meal and increases the possible storage time before consumption.
For which animals it can be used
This type of feed is especially widely used in dairy farming. Also sunflower meal
· geese, ducks, chickens, turkeys;
How to use
The main outlet for sunflower meals is the animal feed market. Sunflower meal is a valuable protein source for various species/categories in livestock feeding. However, specific restrictions in animal feed are taken into consideration such as the maximum incorporation rates, the species concerned, or r nonprotein compounds.
In its pure form, this type of feed is usually not given to farm animals. Most often sunflower meal is included in the composition of various feeds. Quite widely, this additive is used mainly by large and medium-sized agricultural enterprises. In private households, the meal of this variety has not yet found particularly widespread use. However, some owners of farmsteads such a product their animals still feed. In this case, cows, pigs, etc., also usually get it with feed.
including rapeseed, belong to the group of universal feeds in animal husbandry. Usually, they contain all the components necessary for the normal development of animals. However, in addition to them on farms, pigs and cows are usually given more succulent and coarse feed. That is, they introduce into the diet of animals, for example, silage, roots, and for cattle, of course, hay or grass. Sunflower meal is lower in lysine content and higher in methionine than soybean meal and thus is usually combined with soybean meal in livestock feeds.
