Blood that is collected during the slaughter of various livestock species (cattle, pigs, chickens, etc.) is dried and made into Blood Meal
We source the following from multiple sources and deliver to many destinations:
It can be dried by various processes (ring, drum or spray dried) after collection so that it can be handled and incorporated into rations more easily.
This results in a good replacement for other protein sources in animal production diets for dairy cattle, beef cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry and various fish species.
The lysine content of Blood Meal is relatively high which makes it an excellent supplementary protein to use with plant-derived feed ingredients that are low in lysine.
For ruminant diets, where its use is permitted (e.g. in Europe Blood Meal can only be used in aquaculture feeds), Blood Meal can be a valuable source of by-pass proteins, lowering the overall dietary protein requirement of the feed mix.
For pig diets, where its use is permitted, Blood Meal has been found to be a good source of protein, partially replacing Soybean Meal or other protein sources of the feed mix.
For poultry diets, where its use is permitted, Blood Meal can be successfully included. Depending on the target bird and and growth stage, Blood Meal can either replace some or all of other protein sources such as Fish Meal, resulting with improved broiler and layer performance.
For fish diets, depending on the target fish species and stage of growth, Blood Meal has been shown to be a successful replacement for between some and all of the Fish Meal comprising the feed mix.
For determining the required feed mix for the growth stage of the target animal or fish species, a qualified animal nutritionist should be consulted.
