Bone meal is an item, with no use, that appears in the custom food stockpile options.
While it frequently appears in lairs in Adventure mode, it does not normally appear in Dwarf fortress mode. In any case it appears to have no use, except perhaps as supplemental calcium for night creatures.
In reality, bone meal is made by grinding animal bones into a powder and is used as a fertilizer for plants and as a nutritional supplement for animals.
