insects as livestock feed

“Use of insects as a sustainable protein rich feed ingredient in pig and poultry feed is technically feasible. Insects can be reared on low-grade bio-waste and can turn low-grade bio-waste into high quality proteins. Insects therefore can be a promising interesting link in the animal feed chain to fulfil the globally increased demand for protein.” from: Insects as a sustainable feed ingredient in pig and poultry diets – a feasibility study”, Livestock Research, Wageningen University, October 2012.
