Oregon researchers will add cattle to their hemp animal feed studies under a new federal grant.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture granted nearly $300,000 to researchers at Oregon State University studying how to implement the safe use of hemp byproducts into livestock diets, to maximize their potential nutritional properties.

The Oregon State study earned $299,950 in an $8.5 million chunk of funding awarded for 29 research and Extension grants from the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture. It was the only hemp-specific research project to be funded.
