USSEC Participates in Non-Ruminant Nutrition Forum in Korea

USSEC recently participated in the Non-Ruminant Nutrition Forum in Korea. Swine and poultry nutritionists from feed mills and swine and poultry integrators attended the event. A need for analysis of amino acids in soybean meal (SBM) was discussed at the forum, and Hyung Suk Lee, animal utilization technical director, suggested that nutritionists and integrators analyze all imported SBM to evaluate the economic value of crude protein and amino acid content.
U.S. hipro dehulled SBMcontains more amino acids than SBM from South America and India, and evaluating the amino acids on imported SBM can differentiate the economic value of certain products. Following the forum, Lee visited the Korea Feed Association lab and its member feed mills to analyze imported SBM.
