Farm Support Industry
Insights from D&B Hoovers

Description

Companies in this industry provide support services for production of crops, such as planting and harvesting, and support services for production of animals, such as breeding. No major companies dominate the industry.

Competitive Landscape

Demand is driven by domestic trends in crop and livestock production. The profitability of individual companies depends on establishing a value-added benefit to farms and keeping wages low. Large companies have advantages in vertical integration and in offering a wide range of services. Small companies can compete effectively by specializing in a niche industry or service.
