Its on the horizon and maybe available in a couple of years. Looks like it will be a big benefit to humans, cattle, aquiculture, deer feeders, etc, with 23% protein content and ULGCS. Without the sterilization side effect when used as primary feedstock.

Cottonseed ground into flour to deliver protein to millions of people – a project to which Dr. Keerti Rathore has devoted more than half his professional career – is one step closer to reality.
Rathore, a Texas A&M AgriLife Research plant biotechnologist in College Station, received word that Texas A&M’s “Petition for Determination of Non-regulated Status for Ultra-Low Gossypol Cottonseed (ULGCS) TAM66274” has been approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, or APHIS.

Gossypol – while toxic to humans and monogastric animals such as pigs, birds, fish and rodents – is useful to cotton plants for defense against insects and pathogens. Therefore, cottonseed containing gossypol is currently used mainly as ruminant animal feed, either as whole seed or cottonseed meal after oil extraction.



Quote
“The next major effort will be aimed at activities to demonstrate the value-added potential of this technology,” Wedegaertner said. “The first step will be to produce enough ULGCS seed for a commercial-scale production run at a cottonseed oil mill. This will take a couple of years.”

I bet the price will be adjusted accordingly.
