Sustainability is important to farmers who continuously improve practices to do what’s right for the environment to benefit future generations. In fact, farmers who raise egg layers have reduced their greenhouse gas emissions by 71 percent since 1960. Thanks to more nutritious feed made from soybeans, corn, grains, vitamins and minerals, today’s laying hens eat about half as much feed as they once did to create healthy eggs for your family meals.

Did you know chickens are especially big fans of soybeans? It’s true. South Dakota layers eat an average of 15,000 tons of soybean meal each year, giving them the energy to lay about 700 million eggs annually!
