Indonesia's Jan-May corn feed mill usage slides 18% on-year
The corn consumption of Indonesia for animal feed in January-May was 2.51 million tonnes, 18% lower from the same period last year, according to Indonesia Feed Mill Association's chairman on Thursday, Reuters reported.
The coronavirus outbreak affected demand for protein, including poultry, and in turn lowered the demand for corn for animal feed mixture, Chairman Desianto Budi Utomo said.
Indonesia's consumption of corn for livestock feed in January-May 2019 was 3.07 million tonnes.
