The animal production systems in Argentina have been greatly influenced by the focus on meat and meat products, exports regime and market interventions. The country produces large volumes of raw materials for compound feed as soy beans and corn, with the prospect to increase production. Government support, access to international markets and ready availability of raw materials makes Argentina a lucrative market for compound feed industry. The demand for compound feed is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period.

The cattle industry in Argentina has been an important part of the national GDP. The industry is highly intensified and consolidated. The beef exports in 2016 has been the highest after the slump since 2011, owning to the favorable Government policies to improve exports competitiveness. However the market is highly regulated throughout the supply chain along with the export licenses, reducing the profitability of the business. The beef production is expected to grow at slower rate as the Government undergoes cattle retention phase to favor calf business. The steady production rate implies stable consumption of ruminant feed.

Chicken has become the choice protein source in Argentina due to changes in dietary habits, busy lifestyle and cheaper price compared to beef and pork. The broiler production system has underwent a transformation from catering local demand to entry into world broiler business. The industry is targeting technological development and process redesign to reduce fixed and variable cost and improve profitability. Technological developments are focused on farm automation, poultry house redesign and automatic feeders. Vertical integration which is the most adopted policy in the business promotes modernization in the production systems creating healthy demand for poultry feed.

The egg sector has been oriented towards fulfilling domestic demand and is gradually shifting towards expanding exports. The growth in egg production is due to the increase in per capita consumption. Unlike broiler production, egg production systems in Argentina are fragmented with variations in technology and scale of production. The last decade has brought technological innovations and modernization in the sector. The industry is transitioning towards consolidation with small and backyard producers being slowly acquired by medium and large producers. Vertical integration is the most adopted strategy of key players across the value chain. Focus on exports and vertical integration have created need for high quality healthy feed to increase yield and productivity.

The swine industry is highly modernized with thorough intensification of production systems. The intensification process involves nutritional improvements, greater yield and enhancing the quality of products. Argentina is a net importer of pig meat and the need to increase production to satisfy domestic demand is maintaining a healthy consumption rate for Swine feed. Aquaculture is a semi-industrial, commercial activity in Argentina and has witnessed a steady growth in the last decade. Increasing investment in marketing to create awareness among farmers is the major strategy adopted by key players. The aquaculture industry is expected to expand at a healthy rate mounting on the support from the Government. Aquafeed, key input of aquaculture, will grow in tandem with the aquaculture industry.
