Canola meal is obtained from a special strain of rapeseed developed by Canadian plant breeders to be low in erucic acid (an odd-number carbon chain fatty acid) and glucosinic acid, both of which produce undesirable effects in livestock and poultry. With the minimization of these factors, Canola could be a potential for supplying some of the protein needs in animal feeds, and already has become popular in the western Canadian provinces. Because of this it was deemed appropriate to consider Canola for egg production in studying protein sources at South Dakota State University.
