Oats are widely used in porridge and other breakfast cereals. Oatfeed is produced as a by-product of processing porridge and consists of a mixture of hulls and meal remaining from the screening and dehulling process.
A feed of low nutritive value but well suited to ruminant feed. It has a high level of neutral detergent fibre (NDF) and a variable composition which is dependent on the levels of included hulls, flour and screen dust. Oatfeed needs careful mineral supplementation.
