Indonesian feed industry on the rise again

After being hit by bird flu, the poultry consumption seems to increase again in Indonesia. This increase is expected to increase the Indonesian animal feed output with 5% to 7.5 million tonnes this year.

Despite an expected rise in feed demand, Budiarto Soebijanto, chairman of the Indonesian Feedmills Association said Indonesia's corn imports would fall to around 1 million tonnes this year, from 1.7 million tonnes in 2006 due to expected higher corn output.

The statistics bureau expects the country's corn output to rise 7.24% to 12.45 million tonnes this year from 11.61 million tonnes in 2006. Soymeal imports this year are estimated to remain stable at 1.7-1.8 million tonnes.
