Soybeans, also known as Soya Beans or Glycine soja, were first grown in China. They were brought to Europe by missionaries in 1740 and first grew in the Paris botanical garden. They were first brought to the United States as inexpensive ballast in 1804.
Today, the world’s top producers of soy are the United States, Brazil, Argentina, China and India. Vegetable oils are a dense digestible energy source that require less fermentation in the rumen for the energy to be released. They are commonly used in dairy rations to increase energy. They eliminate the negative side effects and digestive disorders associated with feeding more fermentable carbohydrates that are found in a high grain ration. With vegetable oils, producers can increase the energy density in the diet without increasing the risk of acidosis.
Soybean oil is 61% polyunsaturated fat and 24% mono-unsaturated fat. It is also rich in unsaturated fatty acids, sterols, Vitamins A, E and K. Soybean oil is also a cheap and effective dust suppressant for animal feed.
