These two pictures outline the major problems with
using ag-type soybeans for deer or cattle grazing.  The
green forage soybeans are still palatable and attractive
to deer for months longer.  Longer maturing green
soybeans provide more protein by remaining palatable
for  those extra months. Our forage soybean also
produces much more food using the same dollar value
of fertilizer and other inputs.

The competitors dry, early beans are
 Beans that remain greener longer don't
shatter as easily.  Our forage beans are proven to hold
their seed for up to a year after planting (BHR, 2012).

Variety selection is critical.  We've
bred our
Eagle Seed Forage
to be better than other
foods plot crops and other
soybeans. Eagle Soybeans:

  • Contain more protein than other
    food plot crops.  Eagle Forage
    Soybeans provide up to 42%
    leaf protein, that's 8-12% more
    than a regular soybean  like
    those used by our competitors
    (A&L Labs, 2011.  Brandywine
    Hunting Club, Independent lab
    and verified by club manager).

  • Stay green and attractive to
    deer longer.  More time green,
    means more leaf protein and
    less shattering.  You couple
    that with the amazing seed
    yield and you can have up to
    10.5 months of food from one

  • Provide up to 10 tons of food
    per acre, that's 2 to 5 times as
    much food as a regular
    soybean.  With our soybeans,
    you spend the same amount on
    fertilizer, spraying, etc
    (Southern Illinois University,
    2009, 2010) but end up with
    more food that is more
    palatable and provides more

  • Produce up to 50 bushels of
    seed, even in drought
    conditions (Large Lad; R. Small
    Farm, KS 2012; 36 bu dryland
    Alabama State Yield Trial, 2009).

  • available in RR , RR2,  and
    conventional varieties

  • more palatable than other food
    plots and other soybean
    varieties (Noble Fdn, 2008).

  • more drought tolerant (Purdue,

  • provide more nodes, more
    branches, more food.
EAGLE FORAGE soybeans can put
on more than
38 nodes per plant,
while other soybeans can produce
only 14 to 20  per stem.

Our forage varieties, pictured left,
were developed to
contain more
branches, leaves, roots, and nodes,
which means more food for your
deer or cattle herd

Additional nodes, leaves, branches,
and height allows the plant to
withstand heavy browsing.

Larger roots are also an advantage
in poorer soils, and make our plants
more drought tolerant.  

With larger roots, the Eagle Seed
Forage Soybeans have the ability to
grow in rocky, sandy soils in both
higher and lower than ideal pH

"Deer browse the high protein stems and leaves throughout
the summer months.  The beans serve as a high protein
energy food in the winter months.
 Simply put, Eagle products
are the best value for your food plot dollar, and are the best at
improving your deer herd, deer health, body  weight and
antlers." Dr. Grant Woods,
