Thompson and Redwood Whole Maize
Maize (corn) can be fed to horses, poultry, pigs, sheep and cattle. Maize has properties which can limit the amount that should be fed to each species.
Maize is a high energy feed and may cause excitability. It is flaked and cooked or steamed to make it easier to digest. It is useful for fattening a horse but should not be fed to horses doing strenuous exercise as it stays in the stomach for a long time. Maize should not be fed as a total concentrate feed.
Whole Maize can be fed to poultry as a high protein addition to their diet. The colour pigment in yellow maize, cryptozanthin, is of value in layer diets where it gives the desirable colour to egg yolks.
