Nutrient content of wheat, wheat by products, and selected feed grains is shown in Table 1. Wheat is low in fiber, high in starch content, and has an energy value (TDN, NEm, NEg) similar to corn. Wheat is higher inprotein than other common feed grains such as corn, barley, or oats. Within wheat classes, HRSW has the highest protein content, with hard red winter wheat and durum being slightly lower. All cereal grains are deficient in calcium and adequate in phosphorus for all classes of beef cattle. Low fiber levels and a rapid rate of starch digestion make wheat more difficult to feed than most other cereal grains. The starch in wheat is fermented more rapidly than the starch in corn, resulting in greater potential for digestive upset, acidosis, bloat, founder, and reduced and/or erratic intake patterns.
