Barley can be included in the diets of most classes of animals, birds and poultry. A great energy source, it’s protein content does not vary as widely as other grains. Barley does have a higher fibre level and a lower energy level, which will limit its use in diets of certain animals and stages.
The feeding value of providing barley for your poultry is inferior to other cereal grains. This is mainly due to its lower energy content and its variable content of largely indigestible carbohydrate components (B-glucans and fibre).
For improved laying results, including an enzyme along with barley in the diets of laying hens can reduce negative impacts on egg production. The enzyme can improve digestibility of the carbohydrates in barley.
- The perfect inclusion in the dietary requirements for meat chickens as barley can significantly depress feed consumption and growth rate.
- Barley can be incorporated into the diet of laying hens providing higher metabolisable energy in older birds.
