Farmers play a promising role in taking care of animals. Animal feed is a major ingredient that assists animals with not only health but also the farms with profits. Currently, Non-GMO swine feed has become an ideal choice to enhance the health and quality of life of livestock. Energy and amino acid are the two major factors which are improving the efficiency of pork production. A feed is more helpful in raising pigs in order to provide animal nutrition and healthy livestock products. Grower feed deals with protein levels until the pig grows. Canola meal has become a staple protein ingredient, as it offers an appropriate nutritional value for a grower swine and also provides consistent value to the swine producers. This meal allows nutritionists to formulate lower-cost diets for pigs because it improves the performance of the swine. Thus, growers swine feed type is recognized as the fastest-growing application of the swine feed market. It is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period 2019-2025. Pig farmers are highly focused on fulfilling vitamin, mineral, and protein necessities while feeding their livestock. At present, local breweries and home brewers are acting as good resources for swine feed. The U.S. pork industry is highly involved in addressing the risks associated with food safety in the feed industry. As a part of it, the USDA recommends both veterinarians and farmers for a quick report regarding sick pigs to government officials. This is because it is useful to test for African swine fever (ASF) and also to increase the capacity to perform rapid tests at laboratories. The increased focus of U.S. pork industry regarding feed safety coupled with the rise in the expansion of ASF has created a demand for high-grade swine feed and also contributing towards the growth of the North America swine feed market revenue. As a result of these factors, the North America swine feed market size stood at $26.72 billion in 2018 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3% all through the forecast period 2019-2025. 

At present, the changeability in feed ingredients, swine genetics, and regulations pertaining to swine feed are the crucial factors which are deciding the swine feed costs and pigs revenue. The U.S. hog farmers are concerned about the contagious swine diseases spread through Asia and Europe. As a result, safety procedures are increasingly incorporated in order to avoid the repercussions of the same. In October 2018, the U.S. government officials stated that they are also improving their ability to test for the disease. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Iowa hog producers topped with the largest inventory of about 23.5 million head among other states. North Carolina and Minnesota stand as the second and third largest inventories with 8.90 million and 8.70 million head respectively. As of March 2019, there is a 2% rise in the count of hogs and pigs on the U.S. farms. It has reached a count of 74.3 million compared to March 2018. This rise in the count of pigs on the U.S. farms is indicating the swine feed market growth in this country. On 5th September, 2018, USDA and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials met with the U.S. pork sector groups such as the National Pork Board, the American Association of Swine Veterinarians, the National Pork Producers Council and the Swine Health Information Center to assess additional measures which prevent the spread of African swine fever (ASF) in the U.S. The U.S. is elevated as the third-largest producer and consumer of pork and pork products across the globe. Increased focus of the U.S. hog operations, particularly in the Midwest and in eastern North Carolina are influencing the demand for swine feed. “The March Hogs and Pigs” report by USDA-NASS showcased about the constant growth in the U.S. pork industry, due to the rise in all hog, breeding hog, and market hog inventories. In 2019, pork production is estimated to reach 27.1 billion pounds in order to meet the increase in demand for pork by the U.S. people. Hence, these factors are attributing for the growth of swine feed market in this region.
