Copra Meal is the residue after the flesh of fresh coconuts has been dried and chopped up before being pressed for coconut oil. After the coconut oil is expelled, the resulting cake is hammer-milled into meal form before going to storage.
Copra meal is very palatable which makes it highly desirable for inclusion in rations for weaners and young stock. Due to the potential for mycotoxin contamination, copra meal is only suitable for inclustion in rations for juvenile or dry stock. Copra meal must not be fed to lactating stock due to the possibility of mycotoxin contamination in milk.
Product is of plant origin from GMO Free coconuts grown around the South Pacific. The toasted coconut aroma makes the product highly palatable which aids feed intake with fussy or juvenile stock. Good levels of ruminal by-pass protein. Excellent source of energy without the risks associated with feeding high starch energy sources such as grains.
Copra Meal has a big reputation for high growth rates with young stock, and rapid improvements in BCS with underweight dry stock.
