First published in Milling and Grain, January 2016

Of the 478 million tonnes of total feedstuffs consumed by EU livestock, one half (233 million tonnes are roughages grown on farm. Of the other half , 51 million tonnes are cereals grown and used on farm. The rest is purchased feedstuffs, including 156 million tonnes of compound feed which makes up 80 percent of this sector and is valued at €52 billion.

This month FEFAC, the European Feed Manufacturers Federation, released its latest Statistical Yearbook 2014 – Feed & Food. Compiled by Arnaud Bouxin, the Federation put the total output of compound feed for Europe at 220 million tonnes of which almost three-quarters - 155.8 million tonnes – is produced within the EU-28 and little over one quarter - 61.2 million tonnes - by non-EU countries in Europe; the major feed producers being Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, Norway, Switzerland and Serbia.

FEFAC puts the value of livestock production in the EU-28 at €171.5 billion accounting for 41 percent of the total agricultural output of €418.5 billion in 2014. It shows the compound feed industry in EU-28 has fallen back from its high of almost €55 billion in 2013 to €52 billion in 2014.
