Increasing the value and marketability of feed grains locations
Aims

To quantify and potentially exploit the variation in nutritive value of a range of cereal grains that come on to the feed market in South Australia to increase grain trading options for grain growers.

Key messages
  • Oats demonstrated the greatest variation in ME between samples, with values ranging from 12.8 to 13.9 MJ ME/ kg DM.
  • Due to the greater variation in ME for oats than other cereal grains, testing to determine nutritive values is recommended.
  • Average ME at 13.6 MJ ME/ kg DM and protein at 13.2% were high for cereal grains and appeared to be consistent across varieties and between sites.
