Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows:
Although wheat is normally considered a grain primarily for human food, it has been used successfully in poultry diets for many years. The amount of wheat included in a least-cost ration formulation depends largely on the price of wheat relative to that of corn or other energy-providing feedstuffs and, to a lesser extent, the price of fat and protein sources. In recent years, considerable amounts of wheat have been included in least-cost formulations for poultry because of a variety of agronomic, economic, and political circumstances.
