Food Fact

Chicken is a staple in the American diet for its high protein content and versatile uses. Soybean meal is a popular ingredient used to feed chickens for similar reasons! Soybeans are grown abundantly across the state and just one cup of soybean meal contains 55 grams of protein. Every year, Ohio’s egg, chicken and turkey farmers use about 16.2 million bushels of Ohio’s soybean crop. The Buckeye State ranks 16th nationally for broiler (meat) chicken production.
