Oregon State University was awarded a $300,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to study the potential of hemp biomass as cattle feed. The project aims to develop safe use practices for hemp byproducts in livestock diets and determine ways to take full advantage of their nutritional and potential medicinal properties to improve animal health. The grant is from the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). In addition to the hemp biomass grant, OSU also earned a $300,000 NIFA grant to study farm sanitation practices.
