20/11/2015: Alltech Global Stats: European statistics

First published in Milling and Grain, August 2015      

This month we look at European statistics – both feed and specifically ruminants. We are using two sources of statistics; our regular contributor Alltech and FEFAC, the European Feed Manufacturer’s Federation.

Europe produced 224.6 million tonnes of compound feeds in 2013, the latest year for compiled statistics from the Federation. Ruminants, including cattle, dairy cows, sheep and goats, and the focus of our ruminant review this month is also based on FEFAC statistics from 2013, showing some 32.5 million tonnes of compound feeds (or 27.5 percent) were produced by the EU 28.

To this must be added FEFAC’s ‘others’ category, which is mostly made up of sheep and goat feeds and accounting for a further 10 million tonnes in 2013.
