CHINA - A new report analysing China's feed market notes that it experienced a hard time in 2006. Bird flu occurred from time to time, resulting in a massive slaughter of poultry and a depression of poultry product market.

The “China Feed: Market Review & Outlook Proposal 2006-2007” also says that hog prices slumped from late 2005 to mid 2006 due to a market surplus leading to heavy losses and a substantial reduction of hog inventory.

The study further notes that, consequently, manufactured feed production slipped more than ten percent in the first half of 2006 on the year-on-year basis. Although soy meal price dropped slightly in 2006, corn and fishmeal price moved up by a big margin.

The report shows that despite the hard time, some large feed enterprises were busy setting up new feed mills, upgrading productive capacity and annexing other feed mills. Some feed enterprises engaged in livestock production and some livestock farms engaged in feed production to pursue an integrated sequence of feed and livestock production.

On the basis of a comprehensive review of the livestock market, feed production, consumption and raw material supply in 2006, this study gives an in-depth analysis of the feed industry in 2006 and an outlook of the feed market in 2007. The study, together with plenty of data and charts, serves as a reference to international businesses hoping to learn about the Chinese feed and feed ingredient market.
