Operating profits for the Archer-Daniels-Midland Company (ADM) Animal Nutrition dropped from US$52 million in the fourth quarter of calendar year 2022, a decline of 17%. However, for the whole of 2022, ADM’s animal nutrition segment profits reached US$170 million, increasing 16% from US$154 million in the previous year.

“Animal nutrition results were substantially lower than the prior-year quarter, primarily due to lower margins in amino acids driven by recovery in the global supply of lysine; pet nutrition volumes were lower in Latin America, partially driven by demand fulfillment challenges,” ADM representatives wrote in press release. “Feed results were stronger, driven by APAC and Latin America, partially offset by the impact of softer demand in EMEA.”
