On-farm soybean processing

Posted: 25.11.2020
The soybean is an excellent source of protein for human consumption and for animal nutrition. However, it also has digestive inhibitors. These must be deactivated by heat treatment before they can be used. Toasting soybean is one possible method for this. In the following video we show how the processing of soybean works on Johannes Edhofer's farm. He grows soy himself and feeds it to his laying hens after processing it on his farm.
