Canada Animal Feed Market Overview, 2027

Canada Animal Feed Market Size, Share, Trend & Market Analysis By Type, By Distribution Channel, By End User, Competition, Forecast & Opportunities.

"The animal feed industry in Canada is a vital component of the country's agricultural sector, supporting the production and sustainability of livestock, poultry, and aquaculture operations across the nation. With its vast agricultural resources and commitment to high-quality standards, Canada has developed a robust and dynamic animal feed industry. The industry encompasses a wide range of activities, from sourcing and processing feed ingredients to formulating and manufacturing finished feeds. Additionally, the country has a strong livestock sector, including dairy, beef, poultry, and swine, which provides a steady demand for animal feed. The industry places great emphasis on producing feeds that are safe, nutritionally balanced, and meet strict regulatory standards. Canadian feed manufacturers prioritize animal health, performance, and welfare, ensuring that feeds are formulated to provide optimal nutrition for various species and production stages. Moreover, the industry is committed to sustainability, incorporating practices that reduce environmental impact, promote responsible sourcing of ingredients, and optimize resource utilization. With a focus on innovation and research, the animal feed industry in Canada continues to evolve, embracing new technologies and techniques to improve feed efficiency, animal productivity, and overall industry sustainability. Poultry feed by livestock type is highest in demand, driven by the demand for poultry meat products by consumers. The rising population further boosts the demand for poultry meat, but the rising feed prices hamper the market's growth. Since poultry meat is the cheapest form of meat available, consumers' consumption is high. Increased demand for organic feed and industrial livestock production further augments the market's growth. Poultry requires a lot of protein, fats, and calcium, which poultry by-products and fish meals provide. According to the research report ""Canada Animal Feed Market Overview, 2027"" published by Bonafide Research, it is expected to grow, but at a very slow pace over the forecast period. The animal feed industry in Canada has been influenced by technological advancements, including improved feed formulation techniques, precision feeding systems, and advanced processing technologies. These innovations enhance feed efficiency, improve nutrient utilization, and contribute to better animal health and performance. There is a growing emphasis on animal health and welfare within the animal feed industry. Consumers are increasingly concerned about the quality of the products they consume, and this extends to the well-being of the animals involved in food production. The industry is responding by developing feeds that promote animal health, minimize the use of antibiotics, and support ethical animal husbandry practices. Aqua feed farming is increasingly being commercialised with its demands, resulting in an increased demand for feed to raise them. On the other hand, cattle feed remains with more market share as it is the most demanded meat by consumers. Animal supplements are expected to be in demand over the forecast period as the animals are deprived of vitamins and minerals from the feed they are fed. Also, due to low feed quality and to improve their structural body composition, supplements are fed to animals. The pellet form of animal feed is expected to remain the main form of feed, but the crumbled form is also expected to be in demand during future years. Plant-based sources remain the main source of protein for animal feed as they provide a range of benefits for both the animals as well as feed manufacturers. The high prices of animal feed and their raw materials act as a hindrance as farmers do not want to invest a major chunk of their income in feeds. Demand for animal feed in the country is increasing with greater emphasis on animal health as well as rapid growth in animal farming, which are expected to increase its demands in the future.

Cereals by ingredient type are rich in starch content and are highly preferred to feed animals. Every grain or cereal varies in its nutritional content and digestive anatomy of the animal. Canada is known for its vast agricultural lands and favorable climatic conditions, which enable the cultivation of various cereal crops. Cereals such as corn, wheat, barley, and oats are abundant and of high quality in Canada. These crops serve as essential ingredients in animal feed formulations due to their nutritional value and availability. Starch that is completely digested before the end of the small intestine (SI) provides the maximum amount of glucose from the grain to support growth. Barely, corn, oats, and rye are entirely used as animal feed and only small amounts are used for human consumption. These grains and cereals might be fed in whole or compound form, mixed with other bi-products or oils, minerals or vitamins to form a complete meal for animals. The produced cereals are stored after drying to reduce moisture levels and preserve them for the full year. Since some are seasonal grains, they need to be produced for the whole year and stored to meet the demands. Production is highly influenced by particular crop failures, droughts, or climatic conditions. The animal feed industry in Canada is subject to several rules and regulations imposed by the government to ensure the safety, quality, and integrity of animal feeds. The Feeds Act and Feeds Regulations are federal regulations that govern the manufacture, importation, labeling, and sale of animal feeds in Canada. These regulations set out requirements for feed composition, labeling, packaging, advertising, and quality control. They also establish rules for the use of feed additives and medicated feeds. Canadian Food Inspection Agency is the government agency responsible for implementing and enforcing regulations related to animal feed. It oversees the registration and licensing of feed manufacturers, importers, and distributors, and conducts inspections and audits to ensure compliance with regulations. The CFIA also carries out sampling and testing of feeds to monitor their safety and quality. Furthermore, Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) are guidelines established by the CFIA that outline the recommended practices for the manufacturing, handling, storage, and transportation of animal feeds. GMPs cover aspects such as facility design and construction, equipment maintenance, personnel training, and quality control procedures. Adhering to GMPs is essential for maintaining feed safety and integrity. Animal feed Pellets are made from corn, bean pulp, straw, rice husk, and other cereals and grains for different animals. They have comprehensive nutrition, improve digestibility of feed, decrease picky eaters of animals and are easy to store and transport. The pellets often contain grease as they provide oxidation and hydrolysis. Oxidation helps to convert unsaturated fats into saturated fats when the feed pellets have improper fats as it is easy to hydrolyse. The quality of pellets can be defined by the repeated handling, bagging, transportation, and storage feed lines without much damage or fine particles. However, the pellet quality and efficiency depend on the raw materials used, like corn and soy lack the ability to achieve good pellet quality, while that of wheat increases pellet durability because of high protein content and hemi-cellulose in contrast to corn and soy products. Additionally oats can increase pellet quality if mixed with corn.

However, COVID-19 has caused some problems and changes in the feed industry, like many other industries, and the Canada feed industry is no exception. It had a negative impact due to disruptions in supply chain activities caused by global trade restrictions. A sharp drop in demand for restaurant meals and an increase in demand for grocery store food, combined with certain challenges in reorienting meat supply networks, resulted in a surge in retail meat prices and occasional grocery store stock-outs of specific meat products. Lower demand for cattle and supplies of beef and pork resulted from the drop in demand.
