Sunflower Meal / Pellets

Sunflower pellets

Sunflower has good protein levels. It is high in fibre which, if originating from the seed coat, is poorly digested and should be finely ground. Removing the hulls from the meal produces a more digestible product with higher protein levels (Hipro Sunflower). Well suited to ruminant rations within which it can help reduce acidosis by its fibre contribution.
