China lowers corn and soymeal volumes in poultry feed
NEW feed component guidelines issued by the Chinese govern- ment would see a re- duction in volumes of soy and corn as import quantities and prices continue to rise.
especially wheat.
The ministry indicated
dried grains, palm meal, flax meal, sesame meal and corn processing by- products were soymeal substitutes.
Accelerating what the market had started, China’s Ministry of Ag- riculture and Rural Af- fairs released guidelines on reducing the use of corn and soymeal in hog and poultry feed rations – as alternatives to corn with prices for the grain rising – a measure that could reshape the flow of grains into the world's top corn and soybean buyer.
China consumes about 175 million tonnes of corn in animal feed each year, and that should in- crease as more livestock is raised on intensive farms using industrial feed.
Those included reduc- ing corn by at least 15 percent in pig diets in northeast China by us- ing rice and rice bran, or using sorghum, cassava flour, rice bran meal and barley to replace corn in pig feed in southern China.
China's corn prices surged more than a third in the most recent year following a drop in out- put and state stockpiles.
Greater feed use of wheat, which has more protein than corn, has already cut demand for soymeal.
In several regions, it recommended eliminat- ing soymeal completely and replacing it with othermeals.
The country started importing more corn to compensate for the do- mestic deficit.
The guidelines listed rice, rice bran, barley, sorghum and cassava as good alternatives to corn and noted that cotton- seed meal, peanut meal, sunflower meal, rape- seed meal, distillers’
Given trade restric- tions on DDGs and a lack of major ethanol production within Chi- na, it is an interesting recommendation.
Feed makers have al- ready been switching to cheaper alternatives,
the new guidelines were aimed at improving the use of available materi- als and setting a formula that better suits condi- tions within China.
Feed formulations that differed depend- ing on the region of the country were also suggested and included recommendations that distillers’ dried grains could be used as a re- placement.
The country also im- ports close to 100 mil- lion tonnes of soybeans to crush into soymeal for animals, agriculture ministry data shows.
Guidelines would see a reduction in volumes of soy and corn in China, as import quantities and prices continue to rise.
