Soybean meal (SBM) remains the most frequently used oilseed meal in monogastric feeds. Expected to provide high quality protein and amino acids (AA) profile, SBM is included at rather high rate, particularly in broiler feeds. Consequently, SBM weighs heavily on final feed cost as well on animal performances. It’s then crucial for feed formulators to properly assess SBM’s nutritional quality.
