LUPINS | WHOLE | CRACKED
20kg woven polypropylene bags.
Lupins can be fed as part of a balanced diet to all animals.
There are two basic types of lupins – bitter and sweet varieties. The ones currently grown commercially as a stock feed in Australia are the sweet types.
Crushed, untreated lupin seed of sweet varieties can be included in diets of sheep of all ages.
There are no limitations on the inclusion of sweet varieties. As there is no simple method of detecting the alkaloid contents of lupin seeds, it is important that only lupins known to be grown from certified sweet seed be used as livestock feed. Manganese accumulation of white lupins may limit the level of inclusion.
The certified varieties of sweet lupins grown in Australia contain only traces (less than 0.05 percent) of alkaloid and are both safe and palatable to livestock without any form of heat treatment.
