Cornell researchers see algae byproduct as prime animal feed

May 27, 2014 |

In New York state, researchers from Cornell University have been testing algae, after the oil has been removed for biodiesel production, as a potential animal feed for pigs and chickens. After removing the oil, the specimens used in the research included 13.9% to 38.2% crude protein and 1.5% to 9.3% crude fat. The algae byproduct could be fed at between 7.5% and 15% of an animal’s daily diet.
