Crush calculator
The gross margin on processing soybeans into oil and meal - otherwise known as the "soybean crush" - gives a measure of soybean processors' profitability. The higher the margin, the better processors' returns on their soybeans.

Changes in the margin also offer opportunities to investors, who can profit from taking positions in soy or its products - or often in both. For example, an investor believing the margin unsustainably high might buy the beans and sell the products. If the investor is right, that combination would guarantee a profit whichever way the soybean market moved.

The margin can be calculated using the market prices of soybean and its products, and the observation that one bushel of soy produces about 11 pounds of oil and 44 pounds of meal.
