THE EXTENSIVE utilization of the soybean for oil and meal,
added to its use for forage and for human food, has resulted in
a great increase in the acreage of the crop in recent years. Improved
varieties for industrial processing and more efficient methods for
growing and harvesting have helped in the expansion of production
and in the improvement of the quality of the crop.
Soybean meal is manufactured into grits, flakes, and flour for
human consumption. Oil removed from soybeans is used extensively
in the preparation of shortenings, margarines, and salad oils
and in the manufacture of paints, varnishes, and many similar
In feeding value the soybean compares favorably with other highprotein
concentrates for livestock. Soybean hay has about the same
feeding value as other legume hays. As a pasture crop the soybean
is valuable for livestock of all kinds. It furnishes satisfactory pasturage
in late summer and early fall, when perennial pasturage
may be short. Much of the information on utilization by
livestock is a review of the work of the State agricultural experiment
