High protein barley is preferred for feeding purposes and low or medium protein types are needed for satisfactory malting. The large variations which occur in the protein content of South Dakota barley make it difficult to plan an efficient program for production of either feed or malting barley. The present protein composition work investigating the protein fractionation of three barley varieties may be helpful toward adjustment of feeding and malting practices, making possible the better utilization of barley in the future.
