Wheat feed is a by-product of flour milling. It comprises of wheat bran, endosperm and other starch screenings. Wheat feed is generally pelleted with the addition of a little water and for every tonne of wheat milled only 20kg of wheat feed is produced.
• Dairy – 2-5kg / head / day
• Beef – Inclusion rate up to 25% of ration
• Sheep – Suitable in all ewe and lamb diets. Care should be taken with intensive lambs due to the mineral content which may cause urinary calculi in males unless an allowance is made in the mineral supplementation. While widely used for many years in pig and compound diets, Wheatfeed is now commonly used as a straight feed for ruminants.
