Animal Feed Production

The Netherlands is a small country comprising about 35,000 square kilometres. In addition to being densely populated with people — 17 million — it is home to a great many farm animals. There are some 4 million ruminants (cattle, sheep, goats) as well as 11 million pigs and 100 million head of poultry. Each type of livestock, as well as other domestic animals such as horses, dogs, and cats, requires a specific type of feed. (The breeding of animals is represented in other PUM sectors.)
