Vegetable oil

Post by 5S Cattle » Tue Feb 05, 2019 8:31 am

Anybody mix this with their feed? My sister owns a restaurant and I can get about as much as I want. Only thing I’ve used it before to do, is coat the inside of bulk feeders that had surface rust. Wondering how it would do in feed. Thanks

I haven't used it, but I've seen it listed in feed labels before, tho I have not really paid any attention to it lately. I believe there may be some kind of BSE related rules on using uncleaned/non-reclaimed cooking oil nowadays since it might have bits of meat left in it. Texas Bred would probably be the one to ask.

Saw a strange looking truck parked at the local coffee shop the other day. Asked the guys about it and they were hauling restaurant grease that had been cleaned. Said they were taking it to a feed company. The nutrient should be there (energy) and hopefully it won't have a foul odor.

The company I work for does this, cleans and reclaims grease. 2 grades , feed and industrial, industrial goes to the biodiesel folks, and yes there is quite a bit of particulate matter in the restaraunt traps, so don't know that effect if fed as is.

Yeah, we run a lot through a shaker screen, and I've seen just about everything in it, but that's picking up at multiple places. I would take the restaraunt trap and use it if I had a chance, especially if I had some poor hay, which I do this year. The "bacon bits" are part of the solids that I spread for fertilizer {see my other thread}, once its processed it's just organic matter. :P We get 1 to 2 end dump loads of noodles from a major tv dinner manufacturer per day, if it didn't have all the other junk in it, plastic and stuff, I'd feed it.

Veg. oil should have the same nutrition after bacon as it did before. Maybe even more. :nod: If that plastic is very small it shouldn't hurt anything either especially if it's very thin stuff.

I think I’m going to mix about 10 gallons in the next feed I make. If nothing else it should make their coat nice and shiny? :lol2:

Don't know about that but should soften up the biscuits.

Not sure who told her it but she's done it every spring for at least 15 years. Soaks down a 200lb tub and puts them out. She's happy so I just go with it. :D

The bulk feed Ive been getting I have them mix in soy oil to reduce the dust. Does this add and nutritional value? I used to use molasses, but they convinced me to switch
