Soybean meal is the most important protein source used to feed farm animals. It represents two-thirds of the total world output of protein feedstuffs, including all other major oil meals and fish meals. Its feeding value is unsurpassed by any other plant protein source and it is the standard to which other protein sources are compared.
Soybean meal is the by-product of the extraction of soybean oil. Several processes exist, resulting in different products. Soybean meal is usually classified for marketing by its crude protein content. High-protein types are obtained from dehulled seeds and contain 47-49% protein and 3% crude fibre (as-fed basis). Other types of soybean meal include the hulls or part of the hulls and contain less than 47% protein and more than 6% crude fibre. In solvent-extracted soybean meals, the oil content is typically lower than 2% while it exceeds 3% in mechanically-extracted meals.
Soybean Meal as Animal Feed
A high-proteinaceous type of meal. It is received in the course of the production of oil from soy seeds.
Soy meal contains a wide set of mineral substances, amino acids, and proteins.
It is used in the form of a basis for various compound feeds.
One of the most qualitative products of phytogenesis for feeding farm animals.
Soy meal is well acquired, and on the biological value is close to proteins of an animal origin.
It is widely applied in the animal husbandry industry.
Soybean meal is used as a part of compound feeds for farm animals and birds of all types.
