The same nutritional benefits that we humans (aka mammals) receive applies to cattle too. There is already much research published by scientists that supports that benefit to performance and health in cattle. Elements such as the Omega 3, 6, and 9; these essential fatty acids are significant factors in its health advantages for animal feed.

Hemp is an excellent alternative to straw, grass, or corn for cows, at least. A hemp fiber supplement helps contract the first part of their stomachs, which stimulates and improves digestion. The cows that eat hemp are exceptionally healthy and produce a little more milk. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Abe Melbourne, Australia 2 Questions 238 Answers 0 Best Answers 561 Points View Profile Abigail 2020-06-26T11:01:58-04:00Added an answer on June 26, 2020 at 11:01 am Hemp components are not still affirmed as livestock feed.

Hemp ingredients are still not approved for use in animal feed. While the 2018 Farm Bill allows industrial hemp to be grown in research programs, feed control officials say that hemp and hemp-derived products are NOT approved yet for use in animal feed. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Hempmaster3000 0 Questions 214 Answers 0 Best Answers 462 Points View Profile Hempmaster3000 2020-04-26T04:07:19-04:00Added an answer on April 26, 2020 at 4:07 am Yes! All livestock can and probably is eating hemp or hemp-based products. It is currently being studied that there is a potential that it could be good for them to eat hemp.
