The Main Grain Consumption Of Poultry Feed Processing Companies

Large-scale animal feed processing companies in Mexico are the main consumers of three main products: yellow maize, sorghum and soy. About 60% of these products are supplied from the US market and the rest are produced in the domestic market.

Annual feed production is about 22 million tons. These feeds are yellow maize (8.4 million tons), sorghum (7.7 million tons) and soy (3.5 million tons of beans), as well as 2.4 million tons of other grains, mainly white maize. For yellow maize, national production has increased in recent years, but Mexico still meets only 1.4 percent (12 million tons) of national demand, compared to Mexico's self-sufficient white maize. As a result of the policies implemented, yellow maize imports increased from 3.1 to 10.9 million tons, 70 percent of which were used for animal feed production. Imports of sorghum have also decreased by 5 to 2.3 million tons over time. Because the demand of the animal feed industry, which consumed 85 percent of sorghum on the market, has changed both for maize and for sorghum. In the early 2000s, the industry used 70 per cent of sorghum and 30 per cent of yellow maize, but these rates changed over time in favor of yellow maize. The Mexican government provided subsidies for the companies and encouraged the use of white maize. This encouraged companies to buy grain from the state of Sinaloa, the main maize producer, to reduce the marketing problems that occur every year.
