Soybean Meal Use by Species (**)

It is interesting to compare these values to the domestic use of soybean meal (Table 2). The poultry industry also uses about half of the soybean meal produced followed by swine; these species requiring a quality protein for efficient production. The amino acid composition of soybean meal complements the amino acids in feed grains to develop rations that support optimum performance.
