The nutritional value of grape seeds for sheep

Journal of the Australian Institute of Agricultural Science 48(4): 226-228
The nutritional value of grape seeds for sheep
The protein content of the seeds of 7 Australian grape cultivars ranged from 9.7 to 12.7%, and the oil content from 7.7 to 14.3%. Linoleic acid comprised about two-thirds of the long-chain fatty acids in the oil. In metabolism trials 10-month-old crossbred lambs were given 1 kg daily of a pelleted diet based on lucerne hay and oats, without grape seeds or with 17% of washed, dried, ground Shiraz grape seeds.
