soybean dockage?

Oct 23, 2017 | 08:45 1 Are soybeans beans, that are broken in halves, considered dockage? I'm just asking about those pieces that are full halves, are they dockage?

Durum seeds broke in half cross ways, weren't to be counted as dockage, hence my question about soybeans, especially that the pieces would be crushed for oil anyway.

Unless soybeans are cleaned before being crushed? Might that be? Reply With Quote

Complte description of proper procedures can be read in chapter 20 of the Grain Grading Guide. Reply With Quote

Yeah just like peas. There's a #1 but generally they ate bought as a 2 or better. Reply With Quote
