I tried growing Lupins as a stock feed years ago on an outpaddock we had on some sandy loam.
Cows seemed to like it , but it was s a bit finicky for my liking.
Its a bit fussy in its temperature range.
Problem was, the frosts we used to get in the late 80's here made the flowers fall off, and any days above about 32 C also made the flowers fall off.
Went back to boring old oats., there werent many years when you couldn't get some sort of yield for hay.

I wonder if this is a winner? Could well be.

Lupin is devoid of starch, which is very unusual for a species of edible bean.
Lupins have a thick seed coat (25%) which consists mainly of cellulose (insoluble fibre-bran) and its removal is the first step in lupin processing.
The kernel (split) of lupin is rich in protein (40%), dietary fibre (37%) and moderate in fat (7%) made up largely of unsaturated fatty acids.

Intensive plant breeding programs have ensured that modern lupin varieties have relatively low levels of the alkaloids found in their ancestral genotypes.

Lupins also contain moderate amounts of carotenoids; beta carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin and tocopherols (Vitamin E)
soy as a protein has it's limitations (if the average canine is a guide, flatulence is a major problem)

and .... 60% of global production occurs in Western Australia !

This company has made a leap in the last few days, more than doubling in price, as it moves into Plant-based Protein Agriculture
WA based, it listed in 2018 and started out as
QUOTE
.. a food and agricultural company seeking to regenerate ecosystems and communities in the Western Australian Wheatbelt by operating a vertically integrated, consumer driven business to maximise long-term, sustainable financial returns.

In implementing this strategy WOA intends to apply a "4 returns" framework on seeking measurable outcomes on each of financial returns, natural returns, social returns and inspirational returns.

The Company currently has and is developing three business streams being:
(a) protected cropping and associated open field operations to grow premium vegetables;
(b) a "Food for Reasons"â„¢ food brand to market and distribute food produce; and
© a regenerative farmland management business.


Since IPO at 20c it bounced along,, struggling to get runs on the table. By June 2019, initial domestic sales of regenerative, grass fed beef and lamb were turning over about $9000/week. It then launched an online presence.
Also, it was involved in trials for industrial hemp, gaining a licence and developing a pilot shade-house


And now, sudden surge, from 15c to now 32c in two days
