I have recently started working at a pecan shelling plant and have found there's a certain amount of waste that no one seems to know what to do with. Most of it is very small meal that has a small amount of shell particles in it. It's not economically feasible to remove the shell so it's considered waste. There is also some larger material, just not as much volume. My first thought was it could be fed to pigs but I don't have a single (domesticated) swine on my place. So the main question, can pecan meal be fed to cattle as part of a winter supplement program and how much. The only information I could find online was about the shell being used as roughage. Which at least tells me there's no reason to worry about the meal having a little shell in it. If anyone has experience with feeding it to pigs I'd love to hear about it. I just may have a few feeder pigs someday.
