Winter Wheat OGTriticum aestivum Winter annual grain. Up to 4'. Extremely frost hardy. "Medina" soft white winter wheat from Rusted Rooster Farm in Parkman, ME. Seed at 100–125#/acre, 3–4#/1000 sq ft. Certified organic.
As food grain: Most soft winter wheats have protein levels of 10–11% and make good pastry flours. Also suitable for brewing wheat beers.
As feed grain: Protein approximately equivalent to barley, but with lower fiber content. Wheat is the best whole grain to feed to chickens and an ideal base for finisher and gestation rations for hogs. Highly palatable to ruminants, but should be fed carefully to prevent acidosis. Wheat should not be finely ground before feeding: cracking or soaking is preferable.
