fraction of wheat contains a natural
phytase, the enzyme that improves
phosphorus availability/digestibility in monogastric species (pigs
and poultry). As such, either less
exogenous (commercial) phytase
enzyme is required when formulating with wheat instead of corn,
or less phosphate salts (mono- or
dicalcium phosphates, for example)
need to be added.

In general
Compared with corn, wheat is more
variable, contains less energy and
pigments, and more of protein, fiber
and available phosphorus. Usually,
the price of wheat in the U.S. does
not allow it to enter common feed
formulas, despite its advantages.
But, when corn prices go up, as they
are expected to do so soon, wheat
becomes an interesting alternative.
Attention to the finer details that
often go unnoticed can ensure that
using wheat will not bring the usual
disappointment due to lost animal
performance from miscalculated
feed formulas. ■
