Sunflower meal, a by-product of the sunflower oil industry, has become increasingly available as a livestock supplement in recent years. Although lower in protein and lysine than soybean meal, an economic advantage for sunflower meal may exist on a cost per unit of lysine or protein basis. Using synthetic lysine and sunflower meal as feed ingredients, diets can be formulated which are equal in protein and lysine to corn-soybean meal diets. The study reported herein was designed to evaluate substituting sunflower meal for soybean meal in growing-finishing pig diets.
