When people think of soybeans, often the first thought that pops in their head is tofu! Tofu is one of the many wonderful products that can be made from these versatile beans, but this protein-packed alternative to meat doesn’t even scratch the surface for all soy is capable of becoming. In fact, most soybeans are actually used in the livestock industry. Around 97-98% of processed soy meal is used to feed animals. Therefore, whether you stick to a strict vegetarian diet or you can’t live without meat, your diet is probably being affected by soybeans.
We decided to make a trip to Mule City Feeds, located in Benson, N.C., to learn more about the soybean production process to see how a bean is transformed into a finely milled feed, that is safe for animals to consume. Watch our video to learn why farmers around the world choose to feed their livestock with nutritious, affordable soymeal.
