Miracle Beans – Cornerstone of Nebraska Agriculture

Did you know that if you kiss someone with lipstick, you're kissing a soybean?  Becky Feagan's 4th graders have been Skyping with an expert on the subject for the last 2 months. Now what questions would you ask someone who's an expert on something so critical to the Nebraska agricultural economy? Her 4th graders asked away and learned that chickens and cattle are the #1 consumers of soybeans, but they're called 'Miracle Beans' for a reason. They're used to fuel cars, sit on, sleep on, walk on, live in, look at, draw and eat. Specifically, they're used for ethanol, foam in beds and seats, carpets, plywood, paints, crayons and cooking oil. The class then learned about the entire processing process from farm to storage to processing plant.
