Apple Pomace

APPLE POMACE is produced when apples are pressed in the manufacture of apple juice/cider. The remaining pulp is high in digestible fibre and therefore a valuable and nutritious feed. This co-product is a succulent moist feed ideal for inclusion in ruminant diets.

Apple pomace is an excellent supplement to grass and maize silages when supply is limited or of poor quality. It makes an excellent buffer feed and can promote the intake of less palatable feeds.
