Research and Markets: Global Swine (Pig) Feed (Starter, Grower, Sow) Market – Forecasts to 2018

Pork is the culinary name for the meat of the domestic pig. It is one of the most common types of meat consumed worldwide. Similar to all types of meat, pork is eaten both freshly cooked and preserved. Some examples of preserved pork are ham, smoked pork, gammon, bacon, and sausage. Pork is a popular meat in the Western world. It is also very common in Chinese cuisine.

Many classes of swine feed have particular nutrient requirements. In general, feed for young pigs require greater dietary levels of most nutrients such as protein (lysine) than that for older pigs. As such, there are various diets on the market, or ones that can be mixed on farms, which are suitable to each class of pig. These diet types usually include starters, growers, sow, and others.

Feed additives are compounds added to premixes, supplements, and complete feeds. They are non-nutritive products used in swine diets to improve the health of pigs and enhance the quality of pork. Swine feed additives help to increase the profitability of pork production. Common feed additives used in pork diets include antimicrobials, antioxidants, emulsifiers, binders, pH control agents, and enzymes.
