About 85% of soybean meal is used for poultry and pig breeding, and a variety of amino acids contained in soybean meal are suitable for nutritional needs of poultry and pigs. Experiments have shown that without the addition of animal protein, the amino acids contained in soybean meal alone are sufficient to balance the nutrition of poultry and pigs, thereby promoting the nutritional absorption of livestock. Soybean meal is used to the maximum in poultry and pig breeding. Cottonseed meal and peanut meal are only considered for use when their unit protein cost is much lower than soybean meal. In fact, soybean meal has become a benchmark for comparison of other protein sources.

Soy meal is also used to make pet food. Simple mixed foods of corn and soybean meal have the same value as foods made with high animal protein.
