The animal feed sector is remarkably diverse, with a wide set of challenges in its many livestock segments. What they all have in common, though, is the need to maximise output, while reducing resource utilisation.
Pollinators such as bees are crucial for our environment, ecosystems, and biodiversity. However, in climate zones with sometimes severe winters, it is often hard for them to get the nutrition they need. Environmental reasons and habitat loss are some of the reasons for the declining number of pollinators worldwide. That makes beekeeping that much more important, but also a lot more challenging. Beekeepers need to provide the right type and amount of substitute food, including proteins and carbohydrates, always at the right time. That can be a challenge, especially for upcoming beekeepers – access to the right products with expert guidance and support are essential.
In the livestock/animal feed sector, challenges are also manifold – for the compound feed industry and farmers alike. On the one hand, there are immediate, local factors like the need for high-quality feed with consistent energy content and palatability – projectable availability and reliable logistics are critical here. On the other hand, indirect, global factors like environmental, climate and social challenges such as deforestation, organic farming, or greenhouse gas emission due to long transport distances also play an increasingly important role in the feed sector.
