In this study, socio-demographic structure of compound feed and feedstuffs enterprises in Hatay province was investigated. For this purpose, a total of 11 enterprises, 8 of feedstuffs and 3 of compound feed factories, were surveyed. The data were summarized with % calculations and frequency tables. It was determined that 25% of the feedstuffs enterprises were graduates from primary school, 37.5 % were high school and university. The average age and experience years were determined AS 47.9 and 19.1, respectively. Compound feed business owners were evenly primary, high school and university graduates at a rate of 33.3 %, and the average age and experience years were determined as 51.7 and 31.7, respectively. It was found that the majority of the feedstuffs enterprises and the compound feed enterprises owned the managers. Overall, 25% of the feedstuffs enterprises and 100% of compound feed enterprises employed the technical staff. It has been determined that all feed enterprises in the province operate as semi-automatic system and employ a lot of workers compared to developed countries. Capacity utilization rates of feedstuffs and compound feed mill enterprises were calculated as 58.8 % and 42.3 %, respectively. As a result, the cooperation of the feed and feedstuffs business owners operating in the province in terms of quality, supply, production, quality and control of mixed feed and training in this field will accelerate the development process of the sector. In addition, the conversion of old and mostly semi-automatic enterprises in the province to fully automatic enterprises by means of state or grant supports will increase the capacity utilization rates, enable less production with less labor and thus will contribute to the development of animal production.
