This review concentrates on factors influencing the nutritive value of cereal grains for animals and strategies, in particular processing and storage, which may be used to optimise fermentation and digestion. The main focus is on the utilisation of starch in cereal grains by ruminants. Extensive comparisons have been made between grains and between animals to understand the reasons for differences in pattern of fermentation and/or intestinal digestion in response to a range of processing techniques. In addition, differences between the animal species have been reviewed to understand further the factors critical for maximising post-ruminal starch digestion.
