Base Feeds

Soya Bean Hull

Soya beans are primarily processed for their oil, which leads to the generation of two primary by-products – Soya Bean Meal and Soya Bean Hulls.

Feeding Recommendations

Soya Bean Hulls can be fed from 0.5-5kg per cow per day. Soyabean hulls have a high nutritive value for ruminants and is a highly digestible fibre source. Supplementing diets with soyabean hulls increase rumen microflora flow and rumen fibre digestion.

However, soyabean hulls do not provide the same effective fibre (large particle size) as roughages.

Note: Consult your milk supply company for FEI guidelines





Crude protein







Soya Bean Hulls are the outer coating of the soya bean and this hull is removed when soya beans are processed into Soya Bean Meal. Soya Bean Hulls are quite small in size and are not very dense so are pelleted to increase ease of handling and bulk density. With respect to nutritional value, the loose and pelleted hulls are equal.

Nutritional Benefits

Soya Bean Hulls are a highly digestible fibre source. They can replace both the fibre and some of the grain portion of the diet due to their energy level and digestibility. In diets where forage is being consumed Soya Bean Hulls can have a positive impact on forage intake and digestibility.

Cattle Feed Storage on Farm

As with any grain or meal feed products need to be kept dry as moisture combined with heat can cause fungi to grow. Common on farm storage methods are: in a shed or unused fertiliser bin; in a covered pit; on a concrete pad; or in a cutting, covered with plastic sheet and tyres. Most feed should be used reasonably expediently (within 40 - 50 days). The longer you plan to store feed products the better your storage facilities need to be.
