Soy Meal Moisture

Ensuring Optimal Moisture Content in Soy Meal

Soy meal is an essential animal feed that is created once soy has been processed and oil has been removed. It is known for its high fiber qualities, making it a reputable type of feed for poultry, swine, and cattle. 98% of the U.S. soybean crop is used for livestock feed, with the oil that is removed used primarily as fuel in diesel engines. At the time of harvest, it is important that soybeans have a moisture content ranging from 12% to 15%. To ensure this, a moisture meter system should be used in order to capture the optimal moisture level. If the beans contain too much moisture, the product should be dried to reduce the risk of mold. This is key in order to utilize the crop for its most economical purpose. 

Compare Your Current Method

Maintaining the proper moisture levels in soy meal for animal feed is of utmost importance, and MoistTech’s moisture meters play a vital role in achieving this. These high-performance near-infrared moisture control devices provide accurate and reliable measurements, allowing producers to closely monitor and control the moisture content during the production process. By utilizing MoistTech’s moisture meters, producers can ensure that the soy meal is neither too dry nor too wet, preventing issues such as spoilage, mold growth, and loss of nutritional value. 

Maintaining the optimal moisture content in soy meal ensures its quality, palatability, and shelf life, ultimately leading to better feed conversion rates and improved animal health. Investing in MoistTech’s moisture meters allows producers to maintain the desired moisture levels in soy meal for animal feed, resulting in top-notch feed quality, enhanced nutrition, and overall satisfaction for both feed producers and animals.

Saving Money in Drying

Dryer effectiveness is critical, as dryers consume a large amount of energy during operation. The implementation of moisture measurement before and after the drying process provides immediate control over the temperature and operational efficiency.

Reducing front-end expenses and increasing quality and efficiency have always been a top priority for producers, highlighting the need for companies to thoroughly evaluate their current methods of reducing waste.
