Animal Nutrition - Introduction

Roughly 5 Mio EU farmers raise animals for food production with a value of about EUR 130 billion. Every year, they need approximately 450 Mio tons of feed for their animals.

There are different types of feed:

For the latest on the marketing of feed materials and compound feed, see EC Regulation 767/2009 PDF.

For the new rules on the authorisation, supervision and labelling of feed additives, see EC Regulation 1831/2003 PDF.

The Commission and the Member States discuss animal nutrition issues in the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health - Animal Nutrition.
