You either are willfully ignorant or are severely challenged. Soybeans are a staple of animal feed mixes in livestock and especially poultry production. The farmed fish producers really go for soybean meal. Deer love to graze in soybean fields. 97% of the soybean meal in the U.S is used for livestock and poultry. Just about any given morning or evening I can see whitetail deer in the soybean fields in my area. Maybe Colorado Mule deer are not fond of soybeans. I haven't looked into that. Many other wildlife species frequent soybean fields. Vermin will invade soybean meal storage facilities and consume it. In terms of soybeans for livestock and poultry feed, it is soybean meal that is used. The oil is pressed out. The soybean oil used to be a waste byproduct until biodiesel and other uses for it opened up a demand. That some are finding even more uses for soybean oil is not surprising.
