(This paper was presented at AFMA’s annual symposium on 11 October 2006).Soybeans and its by-products, Soybean Oil and Soybean meal continue to maintain a pace of increased production due to worldwide demand.

Good informative article. Information on which is the best method of processing soyabeans to make meal for applications in poultry- broiler and layer, breeders would be helpful.
What analysis are necessary to do every time a batch of meal is purchased? What are the consequences for poultry diets and quality of meal for each test analysis variations from normal standard values for each parameter?

Answers to these questions would be appreciated.

We need to know the relationship between full fat and soya cake to be able to validate the best soya to use. The oil content in the full fat really affects the laying bird causing accumulation of fat which affects the laying performance. Full fat soya is better for broilers than layers.

Extruded full-fat soy is beneficial for most types of animal diets, usually in concert with other nutrients containing low fat/oil levels. The highly-available energy, as discussed in my Insta-Pro blog post ( provides a sort of consistent baseline level in the diet that can help withstand variation in the available energy contents of other ingredients.

If boiling is simple way to prepare full fat soya, can we give it broiler directly or crushed? I live in Nigeria

Full fat soya is good for poultry diets especially broiler chicken and to an extent laying birds if actually the breed, proper crude fiber are considered and the latter nutritionally employed to check unnecessary build up of fat tissues leading to fatty liver issues and prolapse of the oviduct in layers. consequently leading to mortalities and less profit.
Finally implore the knowledge of a good nutritionist for every line of production of animals.
