Feed Wheat

Feed Wheat

Very high in energy with average protein (13%). High in starch (64%), low in fibre (3% as naked grain), but tends to be low in vitamins especially biotin. Vitamin E is reduced when grain is stored moist with preservatives. It is useful for increasing milk protein yields and for the promotion of growth. Approximately 10% of the starch is rumen unfermented.

Limits to Usage

Contains high levels of gluten which, if excessively ground, can result in a sticky dough, reducing digestion. The readily fermentable carbohydrate present can cause acidosis when fed at high levels to ruminants.

Storage / Processing

Can be crushed and rolled or coarsely ground. Sheep can eat whole grains. Wheat will improve pellet quality (10% minimum).

Material to have been stored in compliance with DEFRA code of practice for the control of salmonella.
