Abstract
Given its qualities, soybean grist is the most important source of vegetable proteins which can be used in all the growth stages of pigs and birds. Lately more and more composite fodder factories from Romania opted for the production of soybean grist and less for importing. One of the many factories which develop such an activity is the studied unit. In this unit soybean grist is obtained for production of composite fodder for broiler chicks. The purpose of this study is to establish the brute chemical composition and the urease value of grist’s produced in the studied unit and to compare the obtained results with the data from national and international specialty literature. The results of the study reported the following: Moisture% - 9,02±2,12; CP% - 43,81±3,01; Crude ash% - 6,05±0,37; CF% - 4,38±3,00; urease activity - 0,066±0,07. The presented values highlighted the fact that the analyzed grist are of good quality and meet all the quality standards, both American and European, also recommending them in the alimentation of monogastric animals.
