Oilseed Crops

Sunflower

Sunflower

Sunflower seed. Products proceeding from sunflower are the main source of concentrate vegetal protein, with an annual consumption over half a million MT per year.
Soya

Soya

Soya bean. Excellent source of energy and protein, especially lysine, it also contains a remarkable amount of many other essential nutrients, such as leinoleic acid and choline, both of them richly contained within soya beans.
Rapeseed

Rapeseed

Colza seed. Main colza seeds used nowadays in animal feeding are varieties of brassica napus and campestris.
Sunflower meal

Sunflower meal

Products proceeding from sunflower are the main source of concéntrate vegetal protein, with an anual consumption over half a million MT per year. The seed undergoes a pervious husking process and afterwards an extraction process using solvents or pressure. Sometimes husk is not separated from meal, obtaining as a result whole grain sunflower meal.
Soya bean meal

Soya bean meal

Soya vean meal. Excellent source of energy and protein, especially lysine, it also contains a remarkable amount of many other essential nutrients, such as leinoleic acid choline, both of them highly contained within soya beans.
Rapessed Meal

Rapessed Meal

Rapeseed extraction meal. Main derivatives from rapeseed used nowadays in animal feeding are varieties of brassica napus and campestris, both them with a low rate of erucic acid (less tan 1% of fat) and glucosinolates (less tan 15 micromol/gr.) named as Double Zero varieties (00), or Canola (in Canada).
Soya husk

Soya husk

Soya husk is a derivative appearing while procesing soya beans to obtain soya oil. During this process, grains are ground until reaching a size of no more tan 3-4 mm. and husk is extracted by suction.
Spring pea

Spring pea

Most common variety used in composed feedstuff comes from the subspecies Pisum sativum hortense (white flowered), while subspecies arvense (colour flowered) are mainly used as fodder.
Cotton seed

Cotton seed

Cotton is mainly raised to use the fiber in fabric production (which means around 40% of fruit total weight). The left over is the seed, commonly used for animal feeding.
