Soybean meal is produced by extracting soybean oil from soybeans. The animals require good quality protein for healthy growth, and therefore soybean meal is used mainly in animal feeds.
Soybean meal is the principal protein source in pig and poultry feeds. Also, it can be used for all farm animals and fish feeding.
The significant protein and energy content of soybean meal makes it possible to create high-protein and high-energy diets without having to use expensive feed components of animal origin, that is why this type of meal is very useful.
