Hazelnut Products as a Feedstuff for Pigs

Authors: , , ,


Hazelnut (Corylus spp) is a perennial crop being explored as an alternative oilseed crop for farmers. Adding value to hazelnut processing co-products, such as shells and undersized in-shell hazelnuts, by feeding them to livestock may be possible, but there is limited data on performance and meat quality of pigs fed hazelnut products. The objective of this project was to gather preliminary data regarding feeding hazelnut kernels, shells, and in-shell hazelnuts to pigs raised in bedded hoop barns.
