In recent years, there has been a demand by Compound feed producers not to feed soybean meal to commercial farm animals. The reasoning behind this trend varies, but most producers have health concerns regarding soy for both their birds and humans, eating pig and poultry products, meat and eggs from birds fed soy. Besides, there is concern that most soy produced is a “genetically modified organism” (GMO). Most soy is genetically manipulated so that it is resistant to the widely used herbicide. Many are concerned that soy is not locally grown, most is produced in different regions and transported intercontinental by rail car, ships causing contamination.
The expansion of soy cultivation has been observed over the past decades. Although soy production has generated substantial revenue for producers, traders and national economies, it is also causing severe environmental and social impacts. These include deforestation, erosion and soil degradation, land conflicts and human rights violations, slavery, reduced employment opportunities, food insecurity, health problems and pollution caused by pesticides and nitrate leaching.
Pig and Poultry feeding is heavily dependent on soy as an ingredient. Unlike ruminants, which can thrive on forages, Pigs and poultry require a balanced diet. Therefore, these diets must contain proper ingredients at the acceptable levels for productive hogs and chickens.
