Copra Meal

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

  • High levels of copra meal should not be suddenly included in the diet of pigs or poultry (even if the diet is nutritionally sound). Introduce copra meal into the diet slowly over time. This will overcome the initial reluctance by stock to eating copra meal.
  • Copra meal can be used in diets for pigs, poultry, cattle and horses of all ages except very young stock.
  • The protein in copra meal is low in lysine and histidine. The high fibre level will limit the use of the meal in poultry and pig feeds.
