Corn germ meal is supplemented with various gains such as barley, distiller's grain, sorghum, and wheat in animal’s diet with varying quantities based on their requirements for growing, lactating and breeding. With the increasing food processing industries across the world, the livestock production and distribution is also expanding over the years which is anticipated to drive the positive growth of the global corn germ meal market in the future.
Corn Germ Meal as a Substitute for Regular dietary Feed
The sustained increase in the cost of raw materials has resulted in the dynamic pricing of regular feedstuff ingredients for the animals.
