At-A-Glance: Global compound feed facts

The World Feed Panorama revealed that three-quarters of all production came from only 17 countries – with the top five livestock feed-producing countries supplying nearly half of all the compound feeds produced worldwide. The year 2015 is a banner year for the World Feed Panorama, as it marks its 25th year of monitoring the tonnages produced by industrial mills in all countries. The annual report focuses specifically on complete compound feeds, without counting the premixes, concentrates or supplements; it also excludes feeds made on the farm.
