Belarus feed manufacturers pressured by falling margins

Multiple economic and agricultural factors challenge Belarus’ feed industry, dropping its production and profits

In 2016, the purchasing prices for grain in Belarus dropped to the lowest level in 28 years. Due to the state regulation in country’s economy, this has significantly cut the profitability of most Belarusian feed mills. Feed producers in Belarus also have to deal with several other problems, such as a falling demand for feed and an epidemic of non-payments.
