Brazil poised to increase feed production volume

Brazil poised to increase feed production volume | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

by Feedstuffs, 17/01/2019 -

Brazil is expected to increase its feed production volume to 100 million metric tons (mmt) during the next several years based on the level of pork and poultry production in the country and the global commodity market, according to feed industry experts and analysts in the department of feed production of the Russian Ministry of Agriculture.

At present, Brazil remains the largest feed producer in Latin America and the third largest on a global scale. Last year, it produced almost 70 mmt of feed, twice as much as India, the world’s fourth largest producer. Local analysts believe the country has not yet fully realized its potential in the global feed market.

In fact, the volume of feed production in Brazil has been growing for the last seven years. Analysts predict the growth is expected to continue until at least the beginning of 2020, largely due to the large raw materials base of the industry and low production costs.

Spot maize prices have risen 7.6% over the past fortnight, driving end-users including poultry and livestock feed manufacturers to panic stocking.

Feed manufacturers are heading towards Chindwada in Madhya Pradesh, the only place in the country where maize availability is currently comfortable.

“We normally buy maize from Karnataka and Maharashtra. However, this year, even during the peak season, availability at these two places was not enough and neither was it of good quality,” said Latur-based Vijay Jadhav, a poultry feed manufacturer who purchased his requirements from Madhya Pradesh.

Spot maize prices for Sangli delivery increased to Rs 1,647/quintal on the National Commodity & Derivatives Exchange on Monday from Rs 1,531/quintal on November 12.

With the shortage developing during the crop’s peak arrival season, the feed industry is in panic mode.

Maize is the third most important cereal crop in India, after rice and wheat, and accounts for about 10% of the country’s food grain production. More than half the maize produced locally is consumed as poultry feed, while the rest goes as food for humans, animal feed and industrial processing.

Reuters, 21/01/2019 - EU set to break last season's maize import record. Imports fuelled by 2018 drought, big Ukraine crop. Maize flows have turned EU into net cereal importer. Imports seen easing next year if EU harvest rebounds.

EU maize imports are running at a record pace, turning the bloc into a net cereal importer for the first time in a decade, as the livestock industry uses a bumper Ukrainian harvest to make up for a lack of forage caused by a torrid summer.
