EU compound feed production forecast to decline in 2014


Compound feed production in the EU will likely drop by about 1% this year, according to the forecasts by the European Compound Feed Manufacturers' Federation (FEFAC).


FEFAC says that this is mainly due to the shrinking demand stemming from the challenging economic situation faced by many livestock producers.


Poultry feed production in the EU region is expected to remain stable this year, while pig feed production is estimated to be 0.5% lower than last year's levels.
