This research forms part of a larger project cofunded by Meat and Livestock Australia. It uses controlled feeding trials to study the effects of consuming whole plant hemp (leaves, flowers, stems) on the performance and meat quality of sheep. Feed will be sourced from low THC (<1%) containing industrial hemp crops.
