China's feedgrain use has increased remarkably in the past two decades. Its demand for feedgrain is expected to further grow, and by 2010, China's demand for feedgrain is expected to exceed that of foodgrain. This paper places China's feedgrain demand in the global perspective and discusses the likely impact of China's rising demand for feedgrains on the world grain market and in turn on China's own domestic grain market and livestock industries. The paper concludes with recommendations on policy options available for China to deal with its fast-growing demand for feedgrains.
