Cottonseed meal contains a toxic compound called gossypol. Ruminants such as cattle, goats, and sheep can tolerate moderate amounts of gossypol because gossypol binds to proteins in the rumen. Young calves and lambs are quite susceptible to gossypol toxicity.  Even though they are ruminants, their rumen is not considered to be fully functional and is unable to bind as much gossypol as an adult.
