Cattle Feed Market Trends

  • expanding the industrialization of livestock production in developing nations to boost the market growth

Animal feed refers to the food provided to domestic animals, particularly those used in livestock. In animal agriculture, feed for cattle is a crucial component that accounts for most animal-rearing expenses. Farmers typically work to lower the cost of this food by substituting less expensive feeds, like spent grain from beer brewing, for more expensive feeds. One of the key elements affecting the livestock industry's future is the welfare of the animals. Animal welfare is heavily reliant on well-balanced nutritional feed. The market for feed acidifiers, feed enzymes, feed antibiotics, and feed microbial is growing along with the cattle feed industry. The demand for these trends is correlated with rising levels of meat protein consumption and the elevated value placed on high-quality feed ingredients. Cattle are typically divided into two categories: dairy and beef. They manufacture their feeds specifically for dairy and beef cattle. 2019 saw a 1% increase in the price of beef feed. Oceania experienced the highest growth at 13 percent or 95,000 metric tons. Droughts in the area were primarily to blame, as they reduced forages and forced beef producers to finish their herds in feedlots. Very few declines were observed in the dairy feed estimates for 2019. Sales fell by 3% and 11% in Oceania and Latin America, respectively. The amount of dairy feed consumed in Argentina is thought to have decreased by 870,000 metric tons; Venezuela and Costa Rica were also affected. The dairy industry faced difficulties in Oceania, including New Zealand, where the government set new, lower target emissions.

The market for cattle feed is expanding quickly as milk producers switch from conventional cattle feed to more nutritionally balanced compound feed as they become aware of the real advantages of nutritional feed in terms of increased yield. The livestock industry, the most important aspect of agricultural development in Asia, has been expanding at a never-before-seen rate in recent decades. Regarding sales, livestock products comprise about 40% of all agricultural output and are growing more quickly than any other agricultural subsector. The livestock industry has been forced to adapt and grow to meet society's expectations by providing wholesome animal feed to livestock animals due to population growth, rising living standards, and a rapid rise in the consumption of animal products. Therefore, this factor supports the expansion of the market for cattle feed and has enhanced the Cattle Feed market CAGR across the globe in recent years.
