The total production of compound feeds in Spain reached, during year 2011, 30,631,449 tons, so it has risen slightly over a 3% with respect to year 2010, in line with the increase of the censuses of the main livestock species, according to the data of the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture.

If only the production of compound feeds for livestock is analyzed, the production reached 29,691,052 tons, which means 793,484 tons more than in year 2010. This is: it has increased by about 2.74%, approximately, which represents a similar rise to that seen for the total of the compound feed production. In this way, the compound feed production has increased significantly after remaining more or less stable during 2010 and after the production fall that happened during 2008 and 2009.

The distribution of the compound feeds according to the different species remains very similar to that of the previous years, with the production of compound feeds for swine standing clearly in the first place: around the 46% of the total of the compound feeds production is assigned to pigs. Following that we have the compound feeds for cattle (they imply approximately the 22% of the total), the compound feeds for poultry (their production was slightly below the 20% of the total), and the compound feeds for sheep and goats (with a 5% of the total) among the most relevant productions.

The compound feeds production has increased in the majority of the species, and the strong increase in the compound feeds production for swine stands out: it would have increased by near to 550,000 tons in year 2011 with respect to the previous year, and this means, in terms of the percentage, a rise slightly higher than a 4%.
