The animal feed market in the United States uses approximately 50 million tons of protein meal per annum, with soybean comprising 26-30 million tons (55-60 percent) of the market. Corn by-products make up approximately 10 million tons and animal by-products and other vegetable oil meals make up 5-7 million tons each. In Canada, animal production consumes about 2.5-2.8 million tons of soybeans annually, with about 1.5 million tons of that being imported from the United States.
In poultry and swine production, soybean meal is typically the primary protein meal because of its profile of high protein and energy, and lower fiber content.
ProPound offers the feed meal industry a new alternative that provides high protein and energy, comparable to soybean meal, and low fiber content, making it a great addition to a poultry or swine diet.
