With moderate growth in pig feed Agravis and Deutsche Tirenahrung Cremer were able to keep their front positions from the year 2006, with the Bröring following closely. The company from Dinklage was able to increase its volume of pig feed in the last three years by 25% to 650,000 tonnes. The main cooperative is attracting attention by its expansion drive (Roth Landhandel).
Bela Mühle, part of the Dutch For Farmers Group ranks number five and was able to increase its pig feed production by 4%. Bela produces at three locations: in Langförden at Vechta, in Hamburg and in Rees – Lower Rhine. The Dutch parent company is active on the Dutch and German feed market.
Above average growth was recorded at GS Agri in Schneiderkrug and the Fleming & Wendeln group in Garrel on places 6 and 7 respectively.
Pig focused companies On places 11-21 many several firms can be recognised as pig feed specialists; RWG Hoya (68% pig feed), Strahmann (82% pig feed), RWG Ankum (83%), Kohnen in Sögel (85%) and Diekgerdes Landhandel (90%). These five companies were able to increase their pig feed output by 152,000 tonnes since 2006.
It is noteworthy that every feed maker situated in the northwest of Germany could increase its feed sales volume.
When comparing feed manufacturing data with companies in the north and east of Germany, it can be concluded that these only showed moderate growth or even stagnated in growth. In southern Germany feed production declined. RKW Süd was always a top ten producing company but has now fallen behind.
