Is the cattle feed business profitable?

Two hungry cows.

There are literally thousands of cattle feed companies operating around the world. In the United States alone, the cattle feed market is valued at $74 billion. This is a legitimate industry that isn’t going anywhere as long as humans continue consuming beef, chicken, and other animal protein.

Of course if you really want to make money in this industry it comes down to scale. While the revenue of these companies is impressive, these businesses only make sense if you’re able to scale to sell tens of thousands bags of fees annually to turn a respectable profit after expenses.

Take for example a 50 pound bag of Producer’s Pride Cattle Cubes from Tractor Supply Co. sells for $12.49 at the time of writing. While it’s impossible for us to know exactly what the profit margin is per bag, you can bet that it’s low. We’re talking well under a dollar per bag low. This means you’ve got to think about starting a feed business with enormous volume for this to be a viable venture.

As with any other farming-related industry, it has its off seasons, but in general, if you can produce and store the feeds, and include Green fodder grown vertically via hydroponics. This can help increase yield up to seven times. This can help you manage to produce quality feeds even in dry spells.
