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.

Analysis Glossary

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.


Feeding rates are estimates, and other factors, such as animal health and environment, can have a greater impact on how animals perform. There is no guarantee that animals will perform as expected if fed the suggested rates. Rations should be balanced to provide enough energy and protein for animals, and they should include enough forage to keep the rumen healthy. Animals also need access to fresh water at all times.
