Fishmeal decision

FISHMEAL has been banned from use in cattle and sheep feeds by an Oxon compounder in recognition of the need to conserve fish stocks and in response to increased demand for vegetable-based protein.

Lys Mill will use alternative high protein sources such as 60% maize gluten meal and Soypass to replace fishmeal and provide sufficient undegradable digestible protein in the diet.
