Soy checkoff to promote animal agriculture

Livestock and poultry consume over 94% of US soybean meal, making animal agriculture soybean farmers' top customer. As a way of looking out for their customers, the soybean checkoff has developed two new tools to support livestock producers.

The first tool is a website aimed at providing information about animal agriculture in order to promote the business climate of livestock production. The site addresses myths and criticisms of animal agriculture, outlines the benefits of animal agriculture, and provides information for those wishing to lend support to the livestock industry.

The second tool is a complete kit of animal agriculture information. The kit includes information to help livestock and poultry producers, such as fact sheets on animal health, manure management, and nutritional information.
