Researchers at Kansas State University (KSU) received $200,000 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to research hemp for its potential as a cattle feed. The funding is from USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture. Approval from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration is required before hemp can be fed to animals, pending studies regarding such things as the potential for accumulation of cannabinoid residues in meat and milk, the focus of a first study by the KSU researchers. Future research will look at the effect of hemp feed on animal behavior and the immune system.
