"The demand for animal-derived foods such as meat and dairy is increasing across the world," states a TMR analyst. "This is pressuring the animal husbandry industry to increase the count of animals maintained as well as the yield of products. In the case of ruminants, more specifically cattle, animal feed additives can go a long way in maintaining the health of the animal as well as the food product."

Dairy is the key product derived from animals in demand across the world currently, followed by meat. Both products are being subjected to an increasing amount of quality checks and consumption safety queries due to a rising level of awareness among consumers.
