Animal agriculture represents the largest customer for soybeans in the United States by far, with 98% of soybean meal being used in animal feed. Given the importance of animal agriculture to the soybean industry as a whole and in North Carolina in particular, the North Carolina Soybean Producers Association places great importance on supporting animal agriculture. One of the primary ways we do this is through membership in the North Carolina Animal Agriculture Coalition, of which the NCSPA was a founding partner. The mission of the organization is to increase public awareness and support for responsible animal agriculture in North Carolina through public education, media outreach, stakeholder engagement and collaborative, positive communication efforts.
