The performance of the Live Animal Wholesaling industry has been highly volatile over the past decade due to a wide range of factors. The industry is mainly influenced by demand from farms for cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry and horses. These farms often purchase breeding animals and then use these to breed more animals. Live animal wholesalers also purchase animals to sell on to other businesses, such as slaughterhouses and meat processing firms.
Another major influence on the industry is input prices such as the cost of animal feed. Until recently, feed prices had increased significantly, which flowed through to higher animal prices and wholesaling revenue.
Firms in this industry wholesale live animals to farms, abattoirs and other animal-processing companies.
