Switching to Liquid Feed Key to Keeping up with Growing Food Demand


The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization(FAO) estimates that the compound feed production is currently more than one billion tones worldwide. Global commercial feed manufacturing currently generates an annual turnover north of USD 400 Billion. Of this 400 Billion, Market Data Forecast predicts that the Liquid Feed market’s share is only around USD 4.7 Billion. Over the last few years we have witnessed an increase in the demand for protein worldwide, including livestock, dairy, and fish. The FAO also predicts that by 2050, the demand for food will grow by 60% from what it was in 2010. To keep up with this rising demand, traditional compound feeds will not do the job. We need to shift to the more economical and efficient Liquid Feeds.

There are basically two types of liquid feeds. One is a complete supplement where producers use a company manufactured liquid feed that contains minerals, vitamins, proteins, and feed additives blended into the feed. The other common type being are commodity liquid feed such as beet molasses or ethanol byproducts such as condensed distillers solubles which would not contain any medicated feed additives, vitamins, minerals, or proteins. The feed intake can then be controlled by intake limiters that affect palatability or by physically limiting intake by using things like feeders with lick wheels.

The major advantages to using liquid feeds would be the ability to add in vitamins, proteins, and some medicated feed additives such as ionophores, antibiotics, and other medications all of which would keep the animal healthy. It will also cut down on dust which is a common problem in dry feeds, improving its palatability and overall performance of the feed. Liquid feeds are able to provide nutrients on a cost competitive basis. Among the liquid feed supplements for optimum animal growth, Urea is the most widely used ingredient and accounts for 60 percent of the market share.      The market is segmented based on the ingredient type and the animal type for which it is meant.

The most active companies in the Liquid Feed market are Quality Liquid Feeds and Archer Daniels Midland company in terms of adopted research, acquisitions, investments, and growth strategies. The other companies that are significant on the global Liquid Feed market include Cargill Inc., Grain Corp. Ltd., Midwest Liquid Feeds, Ridley Corporation, Westway Feed Products, and Liquid Feeds International.

Increased population and increased rate of consumption of meat and meat products demand the shift to Liquid feeds due to the advantages it provides. The market is expected to grow at a fast rate as recognition of the product cost effectiveness, easy availability of raw materials, increased availability of liquid byproducts begins to spread.

Technologies are being developed to overcome the limitations of liquid feed such as transportation of liquid over long distances from the manufacturer, cost effective cooling and storage containers for the liquid feed, cost of importing raw materials like maize and soybean, and product viability. Once the new technologies can overcome these challenges and introduce many more efficient methods of food production we should be able to easily tackle that 60 percent increased demand by the time we reach 2050.
