Exclusive preview from Feed International:

Read the entire World Feed Panorama report in the April/May issue of Feed International.

One of the most significant factors to affect the survey’s results over the years has been the dominance of the biggest players, and we found that the two largest producers have switched ranking positions. In past years, the first place for size has been taken regularly by the People’s Republic of China. For 2015, however, we place the United States in the No. 1 slot on the basis of the volume of compound feeds produced.
