MSMD’s SHP50 – Soyabean Hull Pellet is most effective as an energy supplement info rage based rations. Soyabean Hulls (seed coats) are a by-product of Soyabean processing for Soyabean oil and Soyabean meal. Typically, Soyabean Hulls do not require special processing to feed the animals.
Soyabean Hulls are low in starch and thus do not create the negative associative effects in the rumen that often are created when low-quality forages are supplemented with grains. Because of the high digestibility of the fiber in the Soyabean Hulls and the avoidance of any negative associative effects on the digestion of the forages, the net effect of supplementing low to moderate quality forage rations with Soyabean Hulls is a total energy intake similar to supplementing with an equal amount of corn.
Our SHP50 – Soyabean Hull Pellet offers an alternative to high starch supplements in receiving and growing diets. Results from this study indicate that using Soyabean Hull as a concentrate component in receiving diets was most effective at the 15 to 30% level. Any potential negative effects associated with corn in a receiving or growing diet may have been reduced by the addition of Soyabean Hull. The product may have provided the rumen with more digestible fiber and supply more degradable protein.
Soyabean Hull is a co-product of Soyabean processing. The Soyabean Hull is the seed coat of the Soyabean (not the pod) and makes up approximately 8% of the Soyabean.
We highly recommend SHP50 – Soyabean Hull Pellet for dairy and beef cattle, sheep, goats and other ruminants.
