I got my Grandpas old feed grinder going and I want to start grinding our own feed for our layers. Anyone have recipes or ideas what we should feed? Thanks
That should work. Soybean meal is ground soybeans that have been heat treated. I think the only difference is, the oil has been removed from the meal. But it should work well as a substitute.Does anyone know if the roasted soybeans could be replaced with soybean meal? Is that the same?
It will actually reduce. The oil content in the roasted soybean will lower the overall crude protein.
in that case, it won't be wise for Bubbas to replace roasted soybeans with soybean meal. If the formula is balanced, doing so will reduce the energy content of the feed because full fat soybeans has higher energy content than soybean meal.Depends on how you look at it.
Yes it will lower over all protien if you already are using the meal and replace it with the roasted beans.
Yes it will raise the overall protien if you are adding it for extra protien that was not there.
So your both right and wrong in one of the above instances.
