Camelina as Feed -

Use of Camelina sativa in the Diets of Young Turkeys – D.D. Frame, M. Palmer, and B. Peterson – Journal of Applied Poultry Research – 2007

Summary: Our study evaluated the potential use of Camelina meal (CM) as a feed ingredient in turkey poult starter diets. Results indicate that CM may be a potentially useful minor ingredient in turkey diets if economically feasible, but caution should be exercised in using CM above 5% of finished feed in a poult starter diet. In an appended test, similar weight gain and feed conversion were attained with a diet containing camelina oil as a replacement for vegetable oil compared with the control diet.
