Meeting Pigs’ Phosphorous Requirements With Fermented Soybean Meal

Study of the University of Illinois shows that reduces the need for additional phosphorus fermented soybeans

Fermented soybean meal (FSBM), considered a promising substitute for fish meal in weanling pig diets because of its protein content, lower cost, and lack of anti-nutritional factors, may have an additional advantage.
