Let us show you how you can get the average price for the year andprocess your own soybeans into "EXPRESS SOYBEAN MEAL", Our mechanical process of extrusion is superior to conventional solvent extracted soybean meal due to the process in which it is manufactured gives it a higher nutrient availability. This value allows you to feed what you already raise in the same manner you feed your own corn today!2-4% increase in both feed efficiency (8-16 lbs. of feed per pig) and improved rate of gain (5-8 lbs. heavier pig in the same amount of days!) along with ease of grain marketing can add value and additional savings to your feeding operation.
