Update on the Extrusion of Cottonseed and Cotton Gin Waste Mixtures

Michael D. Buser


Whole cottonseed and cotton gin waste (CGW) were mixed together and processed in a dry extruder to determine the feasibility of the mixture as a livestock feed. Samples were collected during the study to determine if the temperature and pressure associated with extrusion would reduce the chemical residues in the CGW, reduce gossypol and aflatoxins in cottonseed, and affect the nutritional value of the mixture. This report describes the study through the extrusion process. Laboratory analyses of the samples are not available at this time and will be reported later.
