Cottonseed meal is the by-product of oil extraction from cotton seeds. As a protein-rich feed, cottonseed meal is a common source of protein for ruminants, notably in cotton-producing areas such as India, China and the USA, where it is used as a partial substitute for soybean meal.
Cottonseed meal is mostly used to feed adult ruminants, who are relatively tolerant to gossypol. Therefore it can be a good source of protein for monogastrics provided that its limitations are taken into account, notably the fibre content and the presence of gossypol. Cottonseed meal is also used as fertilizer.
The meal is mainly used in the countries where cotton oil is produced. The top 5 cottonseed meal producers are China, India, Pakistan, Brazil and the USA. These countries account for almost 80% of world production and consume 75% of this production as feed.
