Benefits of Feeding Cottonseed
Compared with other commonly available protein supplements, whole cottonseed is the only feedstuff with both high energy and high fiber. Whole cottonseed is recognized as a cost-effective “triple-nutrient” for feeding dairy cows, and has many benefits.
Milk production and butterfat boost
In trial after trial, whole cottonseed has been proven to increase both milk production and milk fat test when added to dairy cow rations.
The energy in whole cottonseed is primarily from fat. If fed at a reasonable level, whole cottonseed will not interfere with forage digestion the way starch in corn can.
Improved body condition
Research has shown that the fat in whole cottonseed improves body condition, which can lead to better reproductive performance.
