Summary

This video looks at the results and analysis of grain tailings from organic wheat. Grain tailings, the residues after cleaning grains for seed or sale, often contain weed seeds as well as small and damaged grains. They are often dumped, but occasionally they are fed to pigs and poultry. What is their feed value and is this something we can utilise as a feed source on an organic farm? The trial analysed the tailings from an organic farm and compared it with a cleaned sample. The tailings feed value was higher and contained more protein due to the weed seeds and the higher protein content of the smaller grains. The information contained in this video is useful for all farmers whether organic or conventional by providing a use for all grain cleanings. Cleaning equipment is commonly available on farm or through mobile systems. Feed analysis will be dependent on weed seeds present, their quantity and how strict the cleaning process is. Weed seed spread is possible if feed is used on an arable field.


EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Feed the high protein tailings to pig and poultry.
What problem does the tool address?:Grain needs to be cleaned for sale or use as seed, but this leaves a waste product – tailings.
What solution does the tool offer?:The presence of weed seeds and small grains offers a potential feed source.
