GO 'FOURTH' AND LEARN
News from Mrs. Priebe's 4th grade class
Our fourth graders were excited to welcome Mrs. Joy Olstrom (AKA the "Soybean Lady") to our classroom on Thursday. We didn't realize there was so much to learn about soybeans!
Did you know...
- When processed, one 60 pound bushel of soybeans will produce about 48 pounds of protein-rich soy meal and 11 pounds of soy oil.
- About 98% of soy meal is used an animal feed.
- Soybean oil is the most widely used vegetable oil in the United States.
- Each year, 50 million pounds of environmentally friendly soybean oil goes into soy printing ink. Soy ink is used by 90% of all daily newspapers!
