Wheat has the highest protein content among grains (14-14.5% DM), but the protein has a low lysine content (3.8 g/kg DM). Wheat has a low crude fibre content (2.5-3% DM), because it does not have any hulls. It is a high-energy grain (13.8 MJ/kg DM when fed to cattle, 15.8 MJ/kg DM when fed to pigs).
