Barley is used for livestock feed, human food, and malt production. Each of these uses is best met with specific barley varieties. About three-quarters of barley production is used for food/malt purposes, and the remainder is used as animal feed. Some barley varieties are better suited for feed and others for malting purposes.
High-quality feed barley contains high protein levels and test weights, while low protein levels and plumpness are necessary for malting purposes. However, some varieties can be used for either purpose and, in many cases, their use depends upon agronomic situations.
Barley competes with corn and sorghum as a feed grain. It has higher protein contents than corn, which reduces the need for protein supplements in feed rations. However, it lacks some of the other nutritional elements present in corn. In general, feed barley prices are approximately 85% of corn prices on a per bushel basis.
