Soybean protein concentration has traditionally been considered to be about 40% of soybean grain. Protein concentration, however, has been in a steady decline over the past 30 years, and the average protein concentration across the U.S. is about 34%. The decline in protein concentration makes soybean grain less valuable as an animal feed. The University of Arkansas is part of a national program supported by the United Soybean Board to develop management options that will increase soybean protein concentration. As part of that project, they are asking farmers to take 3 or 4 minutes to complete a short survey concerning farmers’ interests in soybean protein concentration.
