ON Sept. 9, the American Feed Industry Assn.'s (AFIA) Liquid Feed Committee released the results of its "2014 Liquid Feed Tonnage Report," revealing an overall increase of 6.25% in liquid feed production from 2012 to 2013.
The survey found that the most significant increase in liquid feed tonnage was on beef feedlots, at 24%. Dairy rations and blocks also saw an increase of liquid feed tonnage manufactured, while production of range supplements and feed mill blends slightly decreased by 1% and 5%, respectively.
The data provide statistical information on liquid feed production and estimate long-range trends occurring within the industry.
Anonymous manufacturers from across the U.S. provided data for the 2014 survey. Companies that participated in the survey were required to provide manufacturing data for the previous two years.
The survey results were categorized into five feed manufacturing segments (Table) that show the amount of tons produced per year, the difference between the two corresponding years and the percentage change.
AFIA said because more feed is produced annually than is reported, the survey results should be viewed as an indicator of tonnage trends.
