Why is animal agriculture important to soybean farmers?
Animal agriculture is the No. 1 customer for U.S. soy, consuming 97 percent of the meal from U.S. soybeans. This soy meal provides an excellent source of protein and amino acids to feed chickens, turkeys, hogs, cattle, farm-raised fish and other animals across the United States.
