Thailand’s feed consumption to grow 5% this year


Thailand’s feed consumption is expected to continue growing this year. The Thai Feed Mill Association said it expects total feed demand to increase to 19.6 million tonnes in 2017, a 5% increase from last year due to growing poultry and swine production which accounts for nearly 90% of total feed demand.

Poultry production, which accounts for approximately 55% of total feed demand, is expected to grow by 5% from the previous year, particularly for boiler production, which accounts for around 40% of total feed demand. The increase in boiler production is driven by chicken meat exports. Last November, South Korea lifted their import ban on Thai chicken.
