Webinar: Value adding: converting bagasse into animal feed

Event Dates


8:00AM — 9:00AM Wednesday 15 July, 2020

Please join Sugar Research Australia (SRA) and Queensland University of Technology’s (QUT)  Dr Mark Harrison for this update via Microsoft Teams.

SRA has invested in the development of new technologies to transform sugarcane bagasse and trash into nutritious animal feed ingredients. Research at QUT is underway to demonstrate that these new animal feed ingredients are safe for animals to eat, that animals will eat feed containing these ingredients, and that they can either replace existing animal feed ingredients without reducing productivity or improve productivity. The presentation will provide an overview of the new ingredients that have been developed, the results of safety, palatability, and efficacy trials in chickens, and an overview of pig and sheep feeding trials scheduled for 2020.

The Biorefineries for Profit project is supported by SRA through funding from the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment as part of its Rural R&D for Profit Program and partners.
