Securing more reliable and consistent energy supplies for pig diets is one of the major challenges facing Australian pig production due to volatility of the international grain price and variable grain yields between seasons. A more reliable and consistent energy supply will reduce variation in the annual cost of pig feed and total cost of pig feed. The aim of this experiment was to identifY specific lines of wheat that are high yielding and contain high levels of digestible energy (DE) from the InterGrain (Kensington, WA) gene pool for potential commercial release.
