How many of you are planning on raising grain fed animals for pack animals or for food? What are you going to feed them? Where are you going to grow it? Wheat is more than the wheat berries we consume. Another reason it is grown so widely in the midwest is straw can be made from it for feed!

Offered by Roger.

Wheat can also be grown into wheatgrass easily and also sprouted for use alone as sprouts or baked into bread. It may be inefficient to grow the wheat to maturity because of ratio of edible/non-edible plant mass. Maybe growing wheat might have to wait until consistent sun returns for outdoor harvesting. I suppose this applies to other grains too.
