Brief Overview

Barley is a feed grain which is used as a protein and energy source in ruminants. Barley is richer in  methionine, lysine, cysteine, and tryptophan than corn. It’s also highly degradable in the rumen. Barley is usually used in growing and finishing diets for feedlot cattle, as a supplement for replacement heifers, and as an energy and protein source for gestating and lactating beef cows.

 

Manufacturing Process

Barley grain is dried using a drying machine or sun-drying until the moisture content is reduced to 12-14% before being stored. Barley grain must be crushed or ground to make it digestible through the alimentary tract. The processing includes rolling (dry or steam), flaking, grinding, and peletting. The process of removing hulls, grinding, and bran layer breaking  also improves feed efficiency.
