This review aims to show the research on the safe use of the cashew nut and its by-products in animal feed. They can replace corn and soy in animal diets. These investigations have involved chickens, rabbits, pigs, rats and cattle. Indeed, the cashew nuts and its by-products are rich in nutrients (carbohydrates, fats, minerals and proteins). They allow animals that eat them to make animal performances comparable to those obtained with corn and soybeans. The use of cashew nut and its by-products in livestock production is in addition to the nutritional, economic interest.
