They are commonly used in feedlot and dairy ratios since they require no grinding and mix well with other feed ingredients.
They can be pelleted for ease of handling and to lower transportation cost. Cottonseed hulls are comparable in nutritive value to good quality grass hay and are valuable digestive aides to concentrate ratios.
