Wheat seed, 4-H luau, fruit & veggies

With all the recent rains, moist conditions have delayed harvest and may lead to sprouting of wheat in the head. This sprouted grain is unsuitable for use in the milling, brewing and food industries but it can be fed to livestock. The germination process produces heat, carbon dioxide and moisture and could reduce the energy density of the sprouted grain. But, animal feeding trials indicate that the feeding value of the sprouted grain is not greatly reduced, if at all. In some instances, it appears that sprouting may slightly improve the feeding value.
