THE FEED REVIEW
What is The Feed Review?
Compiling news and market knowledge, The Feed Review, provides a condensed and compact view of the world of feed and meat.
It provides industry investors and key decision makers with a monthly ‘cheat sheet’ of what is really going on in the world of feed and its periphery markets. It’s not a crystal ball: it provides insights and the low down on what needs to be understood right now.
The Feed Review is a key management tool for any savvy business line head or investor in the line crop, feed and meat industry.
Why the feed industry?
The feed industry, often overlooked by those unfamiliar with the ag-industry, is a pivotal point in agriculture. It is the destination for over 90% of soybean meal and 75% of the corn grown in the world. Feed represents up to 80% of the cost producing a kilo of chicken and 70% of the cost of producing a kilo of pork.
