Vietnam among top 15 feed producers in the world


The 2017 Alltech Global Feed Survey revealed that Vietnam feed production grew 21% over the past year and that the country moved into the top 15 countries list for the first time, specifically led by increased production of pig and broiler feed. The top 30 countries, ranked by production output, are home to 82% of the world’s feedmills and produce 86% of the world’s total feed. China remained the top feed producer with 187.20 million tonnes.

Asia continues to be one of the most expensive locations in the world to raise animals, as Japan’s feed prices are among the highest in the world and China’s prices are double that of most of the top 10 producing countries.
