An Analysis of On-Farm Feed and Fuel from Dryland Camelina

Concern over rising and volatile energy prices, the desire for personal energy independence, and the promotion of cleaner energy sources has led many farmers to consider oilseed crops as a source of biodiesel. Analysis of the economics of on-farm biodiesel from dryland camelina (Camelina sativa) shows that camelina meal is the primary product. The cost savings of using meal as livestock feed accounts for most of the value. Both individual and group ownership perspectives are addressed. Combining resources to achieve maximum output results in a more efficient process and allows each producer to have less capital outlay.
