Wheat is a staple food in the world and provides about 20% of the energy and protein in food worldwide. Wheat is also an excellent source of energy for farm animals and livestock.

This product with its very high nutritional value, is a very rich source of carbohydrates. Due to the fact that wheat absorbs water up to ten times its weight, it makes it easier to digest livestock.

According to a 2007 census, 102 million tonnes of wheat (16.7% of world production) were used for animal feed. This ratio is higher in industrialized countries: in the European Union, 42% of wheat production was used as animal feed.

Feed wheat is often wheat in excess of human needs or relatively lower quality wheat that is not suitable for human consumption. In fact, feed wheat is the same as low-rich or damaged wheat, although wheat is also produced and cultivated specifically for animal feed purposes, which are of a better quality.

The inclusion of feed wheat in animal feed depends on the relative market price of feed grains. When corn and barley are expensive, or when the price of wheat falls, wheat becomes a valuable option. In some countries, the use of such feed, such as wheat, has received less attention due to its lower cost, and it is increasingly used in livestock diets.

The types of wheat available for animal feed depend on the region: Red spring or hard winter wheat is commonly used in North America, while soft wheat is more common in Europe.

feed wheat is basically a source of energy in the form of carbohydrates (starches) that is enclosed in the outer layers that make up bran. Unlike barley or oats, feed wheat is easily separated by threshing.

feed wheat is very tasty and is a digestible source of nutrients for all classes of farm animals. However, like other carbohydrate-rich foods, it should be given with caution to ruminants and horses, as it may cause indigestion.

As mentioned, feed wheat unsuitable for food processing (due to disease, insect effects, frost, germination, low weight, etc.), can be fed to farm animals. Depending on the extent of the damage, the nutritional value and taste of such a grain may be similar to or less than that of good wheat. It may be necessary to mix the wheat with other grains.

Wheat dietary protein is higher than other common grains such as corn, barley or oats. Also, feed wheat or animal feed helps to increase the concentration of milk in animals and their fertility. Up to 15% crude protein, high fiber and high vitamins and minerals make this product a valuable food item.
