Farmers Fight Back as Soy Inclusion Percentages and Value in Livestock Feed Shrink
Illinois Soy Association Invites You to the HY+Q (High Yield PLUS Quality) Information Series
Soybean feed value and use in livestock feed are dropping. In fact, since 1990 soy inclusion in swine feed rations has dropped 70 percent or more.
As a leading Illinois soybean producer, you will receive a special alert about this important issue and information about how the Illinois Soybean Association and the checkoff-funded High Yield PLUS Quality (HY+Q) program are working to help reverse this trend to preserve, and ultimately maximize, markets.
As the data in this chart show, the downward trend in U.S. soybean values and livestock diet inclusion rates is serious and must be addressed.
Visit SoyValue.com today for more information and sign up for the email series. Watch for the next email from our interview with Linda Kull, Ph.D., Illinois Soybean Association director of ag innovations and tech transfer, introducing the HY+Q program and what it means for Illinois soybean farmers.
As a special bonus for signing up for the email series, you’ll receive a special report summarizing the livestock feed value scores of maturity Group II through Group IV soybean varieties planted in Illinois.
