Let us show you how you can get the average price for the year and process your own soybeans into "EXPRESS SOYBEAN MEAL", Our mechanical process of extrusion is superior to conventional solvent extracted soybean meal due to the process in which it is manufactured gives it a higher nutrient availability to a simple stomach.  This value allows you to feed what you already raise in the same manner you feed your own corn today!  3-5% increase in both feed efficiency and improved rate of gain along with ease of grain marketing and our recent feed mill upgrades can add value and additional savings to your feeding operation.
