INTRODUCTIONThe use of soybean meal in poultry diets can be tested for antinutritional factors, which is easily identified with ureatic activity and protein solubility in KOH analysis. This research aimed to evaluate soybean meal quality measured by ureatic activity and KOH solubility in poultry feed mills.MATERIAL AND METHODSFor this analysis, 283 samples were obtained from a broiler feed mill lo...
