Conclusion-Hempseed cake as Cattle Feed
• Hempseed cake is a suitable alternative to soybean meal as a protein feed for growing cattle because hempseed cake gives similar growth and carcass traits as soybean meal.
• From the results with calves, there is an indication that hempseed cake gives a higher feed intake, similar growth and lower feed conversion compared to calves given soybean meal.
• The digestive system works in a more balanced manner when feeding hempseed cake compared to soybean meal which is shown by a higher faecal consistency and DM concentration and a smaller number of long particles in the faecal matter from the experiment with the steers.
