Now that the cultivation and sale of marijuana is legal in some states there are questions about what to do with the waste material resulting from growing and processing it. No less than a senior executive from the National Cattleman’s Beef Association is asking if it could be used as cattle feed — we’re thinking maybe in the High Plains, a sub region of the Great Plains? Possible headline: “U.S. Beef Industry Going to Pot”.

Currently the waste material from pot production can’t even be donated to community gardens to use as compost, giving new meaning to the term “weed control”. We checked our trusty old Morrison’s Feeds and Feeding textbook and also the DairyOne forage analysis summaries but alas, no forage analyses are available for marijuana.
