Train barley is a good malt variety in South Dakota. Cash received per bushel is approximately $1,05 to $1,20 if the barley can be used for malting purposes. However, the price per bushel is much less if the barley has excessive thins, trash, off color kernels, and foreign material and can not be sold as good malting barley. Obviously, barley growers’ profits are less if the barley is discounted for poor malting qualities. If barley is generally unsatisfactory for malting should it be sold on the market at the discounted price or could it be retained by the grower and profitably fed to livestock? Liberty variety is a good feed barley in South Dakota, The objective of this experiment was to study the relative feeding value of the two barley varieties, Traill and Liberty.
