The large expansion of the canola crushing industry that occurred in North America in the last decade has increased the supply of canola meal for the animal feed industry. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Economic Research Service reported canola meal production in 2017-18 in the U.S. was 1.08 million tons. Similarly, according to the Canadian Oilseed Processors Association, 5.2 million tons of canola were produced in Canada in 2018.

Previous surveys conducted by University of Manitoba and South Dakota State University researchers in samples obtained from Canadian processing facilities reported average protein content in canola meal was 41.7% dry matter (DM; ranged 40.2 – 42.9% DM), rumen undegradable protein (RUP) concentration was 42.7% protein (ranged 32.3-53.8%), and digestible RUP was 74.6% RUP (ranged 71.6-77.4%).
