Last month we had a look at feed production news – to add to that; we want to mention recent evidence that – Global feed production surpassed 1 billion metric tons for first time in 2016!
According to Alltech sixth annual Global Feed Survey, the world produced more than 1 billion metric tons of feed in a single year. Alltech surveyed 30,000 feed mills in 141 countries and found that the U.S. and China are the top two producers – covering one-third of all animal feed.
The aquaculture feeds sector continues to grow (12% growth in 2016) – an increase that correlates with the consumption of farmed fish. Increased production from Turkey, Germany, the U.K. and France contributed to a strong performance from the European region.
