Camelina may provide a partial alternative to soybean meal use in swine diets at low levels while promoting soil health as a winter cover crop, US researchers reported last year.
Researchers at the University of Minnesota, Minnesota Extension and the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service (ARS) explored the potential for producers to raise the oilseed camelina to provide a cold-weather cover crop and feed ingredient for swine.
