The byproduct of pressing hempseed for its nutritious vegetable oil is a high protein seed cake.  Hempseed cake was one of the world’s principle animal feeds until this century. Hempseed can supply a nearly complete diet for all domesticated animal (dogs, cats), many farm animals, and poultry, and allows animals maximum weight gain for less than current feed costs. And without any need for artificial growth steroids or other drugs currently poisoning the human race and food chain.(4U.S. Agricultural Index; Frazier, Jack, The Marijuana Farmers, Solar Age Press, New Orleans, LA, 1972; Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill, Udo, Erasmus, 1996.)
