Except for a few harsh years, mixed feed output in the USA has been rising continuously for 15 years. The main reason for this development is the growth in the fowl industry. By 2024, the Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations forecasts that a further 26 million tonnes of chicken would have been manufactured in the world, equivalent to half of total chicken output.
One of the most important areas for chicken farming is the United States, which accounts for about 19 per cent of global chicken output. The National Chicken Council (NCC) estimates that the amount of compound feed given to birds in the United States will be around 57.2 million tonnes in 2016.
Looking at the biggest US feed producers, only a few businesses openly shared the outbreak of their mixed feed manufacturing in a species-appropriate manner. In order to carry out this type of assessment, the purpose of the present chart is to help us pinpoint the major US producers of mixed feed, which include chicken feed in their range. Whilst one could say that other businesses are producing more chicken feed overall, the top feed company rankings are based on easy criteria: it covers only those businesses with a combined output of more than 1 million tonnes of mixed feed per year.
