As of February 2010, all webpages for the National Soybean Research Laboratory have been remodelled, including this page. For updated information, please visit us at www.nsrl.illinois.edu
Soy in Animal Nutrition Databases highlights research done
by a team of University of Illinois researchers looking
at how soybean meals specific for the nutritional needs
of swine and poultry can be developed and how such diets
can help soybean producers develop niche market opportunities.
SAND is funded through the Illinois Council on Food and
Agricultural Research (C-FAR), yet the team includes members
of the Soy/Swine Nutrition Research Program, who have received
funding from the Illinois Soybean Checkoff Board since 1998
to examine how soybean meal can be best used in swine diets.
SAND provides accessible databases of soybean meal composition
and information on soybean meal processing. It also provides
an Ask the Expert feature if you are seeking more information
on feed utilization in swine and poulty diets.
