Canola seed is crushed to produce oil and meal. Each seed contains about 42-44 percent of oil. This large percentage of oil comes in a small package; Canola Oil is the healthiest oil in the world, and the 3rd most consumed, while Canola meal is one of the most widely used protein sources in animal feed for livestock, poultry and fish. It has an excellent amino acid profile, including high levels of lysine and arginine, and it is rich in vitamins and essential minerals. Studies have shown that including canola meal in dairy cow rations can increase milk production by one liter per cow per day.
