1- Safflower meal

General properties of safflower meal:

The advantages of buying safflower meal for livestock and poultry feed are somewhat known. Safflower meal is a good substitute for soybean and bran. For several years, buying safflower meal as one of the alternative products for feeding livestock and poultry has become a common practice in livestock farms and poultry farms.


General advantages of safflower meal:

  • Low price: compared to soybean meal and bran, safflower meal has a much lower price.
  • High protein (about 20%): among other plants can be said to be a good source of protein.
  • Raw fibers (about 40%): raw fibers in this product help to improve the digestive system of animals.
  • Having protein with high digestibility: having protein is one issue and its digestibility for livestock is another issue that is extremely important and plays a decisive role in choosing vegetable protein suppliers for livestock.
  • Methionine and histidine amino acids: these amino acids are of special importance for the body.


Special properties of safflower meal being produced by Khavardasht Agro-Industry Company:

  • High digestibility
  • Rich in methionine and cysteine amino acids
  • Safflower meal causes more weight gain than soybean meal
  • Very suitable for feeding broiler chickens thanks to a high protein content of safflower meal (wet protein 23-27)


2- Sesame meal

General properties of sesame meal:

Sesame meal is very important to increase production in poultry farms. This meal contains a variety of nutrients and minerals such as protein and calcium, which play an important role in improving production. Chickens that use sesame meal as feed generally perform better than other birds. In fact, sesame meal can even replace soybean meal in animal food. Sesame meal increases egg quality, yolk, and egg size in poultry farms. If taken in appropriate amounts with the relevant supplements, the meal can almost control the cholesterol level. Due to the current global demand for healthy foods, eggs with low cholesterol levels are highly valued, thus commanding a higher price in the market. It is very important and necessary for farmers to understand that despite its many nutritional properties, sesame should always be accompanied by food rich in minerals. The reason for this is that the lack of minerals can have adverse effects on egg health and production.


Special properties of sesame meal being produced by Khavardasht Agro-Industry Company:

  • High protein content (35-42% protein)
  • Contains arginine, leucine, and methionine amino acids
  • The amount of lysine in sesame meal is less than the required level, and its combination with soybean meal can compensate for this deficiency.
  • It can be used at a rate of 15-20% in poultry food.
  • It can be used for feeding light and heavy animals.
  • The only limitations on the use of sesame meal are its high phytic acid and lack of phytase secretion in the digestive system, low energy, and low lysine content.

General properties of cottonseed meal:

Cottonseed meal has 20-25% protein and 10-13% fat content, and its raw fiber is about 20%. High-quality cottonseed meal has a moisture content of less than 10%. As a phosphorus and calcium supplement, this product along with other food items is a good feed for dairy cows and sheep. Thanks to its high-fat content, cottonseed meal increases milk production and milk quality in dairy cattle and increases weight in fattening cattle. Cottonseed meal is the best alternative as a food with moderate protein content to soybean meal, which has been facing a sharp price rise.

4- Sunflower meal


General properties of sunflower meal:

Thanks to its high protein, sunflower meal can be included in the food of ruminants and non-ruminants. It can also be used as bird feed with high protein and low fiber content. The high amount of methionine is one of the factors that caused the high nutritional value of sunflower meal. Also, the protein in sunflower meal is so high that it can be used instead of soybean meal in animal food. Studies show that if sunflower meal along with soybean meal are included for feeding milking cows, it will increase the milk of the cows since the absorbable protein increases.
