Wheat can be included in the diets of pigs, poultry, cattle, horses and sheep of all ages. For best results wheat should be rolled or coarsely ground, although whole wheat can be fed to poultry over two months of age. Inclusion of finely ground wheat should be avoided, since this has been associated with digestive disorders owing to the pastiness of the meal. • Wheat should be coarsely rolled for feeds for cattle and sheep, due to the increased risk of acidosis or grain poisoning. Including a buffer is recommended, as to reduce the risk of acidosis. • Because of its variability, the grain should be analysed for protein content to allow selection of the correct amino acid content for diet formulation.
