We grow all our oats on the farm. Oats are a whole-grain food, known scientifically as Avena sativa. They have the highest fibre content and lowest energy of all the grains. Although oats are a type of grain, they don't contain gluten. Oats are very high in B vitamins, and Oat beta-glucan has been shown to lower/reduce blood cholesterol.
We don't include oats in our birdfood due to the high indigestibility of the outer husk, however we do use a lot of naked oats, which are much more digestible because they don't have an outer husk.
Whole oats are still a good choice for feeding horses and they are often supplemented with compound feeds.
