Less corn will be available across the U.S. for
feeding animals this year, so the use of wheat is
expected to increase. fredleonero | Bigstock.com
should be expected in fat carcass composition.
Perhaps, a bit harder fat carcass will be observed,
but this is more evident with other cereals, such as
barley, than wheat. Wheat-based diets will require
a bit extra added oil or fat in order to keep overall
dietary energy levels up. Luckily, soybeans are
expected to abound in the U.S. this coming season,
and as such soy oil will be relatively inexpensive,
making wheat feeding more favorable.

Pigments

and using them greatly helps bring precision in formulation and predictability in animal performance.

Protein
Protein is a major key nutrient with great variability
in wheat. Often, knowing the variety is good enough
to have a rough estimate of protein content, but a lab
analysis is even better. With wheat, near-infrared
(NIR) analysis systems often illustrate their value,
assuming they are correctly calibrated using proper
and accurate wheat sample values. As far as amino
acids go, their levels are not linearly proportional to
protein; the same is true for all cereals. For that, there
are equations that predict the amount of each amino
acid based on protein content, and it is highly advisable
such equations be used, especially for wheat.

Lipids
The amount of lipids (oil/fat) in wheat is not much
different than that in corn, and no major changes

Wheat does not contain the same pigments as corn.
Thus, eggs, fat, and even milk will not be as yellow/
orange as it is from feeding corn. In some cases (fat,
milk), this might be desirable, but in others (egg
yolk, chicken skin, and even butter), this might be
a problem. Adding synthetic or natural pigments is
a common practice, but consumers are rarely made
aware when synthetic pigments are utilized - a
matter pertaining more to consumer politics rather
than to technical issues, but something that deserves
more discussion.

Fiber
Wheat contains slightly more fiber than corn, and
most of it is in the bran section. In addition, its profile
is more complicated than that in corn. The non-starch
polysaccharides that make up part of the fiber fraction not only reduce available energy and reduce
digestibility of other nutrients (as overall fiber does in
general), but they can cause specific problems, such
as sticky droppings and dirty eggs in chicken. Adding
wheat-specific enzymes is believed to alleviate at
least some of the above problems, but there is such a
plethora of available commercial enzymes that it has
become difficult to distinguish science from marketing.

Minerals
In total, wheat contains about the same amount of
