[USA] Algae are organisms so environmentally adaptable that they flourish in wastelands, sewage and saline bodies of water. They can grow in high densities, in the dark and in the presence of high concentrations of nitrogen and phosphates. Continue reading Microalgae byproduct as a feedstuff for grower steers
Feeding cattle algae is set to be the next big cost-saver for livestock farmers. Protein-rich microalgae could be grown on-farm in future, powered by solar, significantly cutting costs and making farm systems more independent,… Continue reading Livestock farmers could feed cattle algae new research has found
