about animal feed

De Heus makes feed for cows, chickens, pigs, sheep, goats, fish... and even ostriches.

Nope! Different animals get different feed. This is because their digestion systems are so different. While one animal will eat mainly grass, another may prefer seeds, insects or meat. Because different animals have a different digestive system and diet, we make sure that each type of animal has its own feed, made specially for them. But not all cows will have the same feed either. We have different recipes depending on what is best for the farm – so no two feeds are the same.

We use Bulk trucks to transport the bulk feed to the farms, regular trucks for transporting feed packaged in bags, and barges (large canal boats) to bring the raw materials to our factory.

Farm animals don’t just eat pellets. They also eat other food, such as corn, hay or fresh grass. 

Every day, there are hundreds of trucks and Bulk trucks driving all over the world to take all the food to the different farms.

Most raw materials are brought to the factory using large canal boats called barges. That is why all De Heus factories are located next to a canal. The boat picks up the raw materials from the port and brings it inland to the factory via the canal. Once the raw materials arrive at the factory, a crane lifts them off the boat and puts them onto a conveyor belt, which brings them into the factory.

We have factories across the world, in the Netherlands, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Serbia, Portugal, Spain, Vietnam, India, Myanmar, Brazil, South Africa, Cambodia, Ghana, Egypt, Indonesia, Ivory Coast and Russia. In total we have more than 90 factories around the world.
