"Large increases in milk production are possible when early lactation cows are fed properly heated soybeans.   We conducted a large scale lactation study to measure milk production when soybeans were heated to 295° F and steeped for 30 min (Faldet et al., 1991).  Forty-six multiparous Holstein cows were fed one of three total mixed diets from 15 to 119 days with alfalfa silage a...

Nowadays, some processors extract the crude oil first from the beans and then process the meal into a heat treatment vessel to raise the temperature for long periods of time to achieve high degree of by-pass protein over 55-65%.
