I think it's good news for me. I just want to know if it's appropriate that peanuts residue contains 46% protein. Can it be used instead of soymeal in the feed?

Thank you for the question. It most certainly could be used as a protein source for feed in place of soymeal, but what you have to watch for is the presence of aflatoxins that can be found in the meal.

Dr. Md. Robiul Islam (dvm) I am not sure what you mean by check Aflatoxin. This is something that could be present, but then could also be not present, it is found in the peanut itself before it goes through processing, and remains in the meal.
In order to find out if your meal has a presence of Aflatoxins you would need to run laboratory analysis, and then that would confirm how much, if any are present in your meal.

Dr. Md. Robiul Islam (dvm) , peanut meal is very low in lysine compared to soy meals. Growth performance will be hindered if not balanced for lysine, and potentially other amino acids as well. So, value accordingly...
And, as Amanda points out, you have to continually test new batches of peanuts and meal for aflatoxin - it's not a constant level.
