Algae co-products providing protein source in Texas A&M research

[8th, May 2014] While there may be little use for most of the algae growing in Midwestern farm ponds, researchers at Texas A&M University are finding algae co-products can be used in cattle rations. Since algae is 40 percent oil, researchers were trying to determine what could be done with the remaining 60 percent, says Tryon Wickersham, an animal scientist at Texas A&M… Continue reading Algae co-products providing protein source in Texas A&M research
