garden pea and field pea (canada, maple, austrian, vetch) are grown for
their seeds. Field peas will test approximately 22-23 percent crude protein.
Peas are used as protein sources in Purgrain feeds.
corn is very popular grain that is high in carbohydrate but low in protein.
Over half of the corn grown in the United States is used in livestock
rations. The small yellow corn variety used in Purgrain Feeds are special
hybrids that produce smaller, uniform kernels. Since hybrids will not
transmit "hybrid vigor" to their offspring, new parents must
be crossed each year to get a new hybrid seed for planting.
is a variety of flint corn with similar nutritional characteristics as
dent corn. Popcorn has no dent since the horny starch covers the top portion
of the kernel. One of the uses of popcorn in the United States is as a
snack. The expansion of the water in the kernel causes the grain to explode

groats are the portion of the oat grain, minus the hull. This highly digestible
product is used in a few pigeon mixes. Oat groats contain more protein
than corn, but are lower in carbohydrate. Oats are grown in many countries,
mostly in cooler areas.
popular crop grown mostly in the mid western area of the United States.
A large percentage of the milo crop is fed to cattle and hogs. Purgrain
uses both red milo and white kafir in several pigeon rations. The product
is high in carbohydrate. Milo is more drought resistant than many other
cereal grains. It can withstand a lack of rain as the plant actually becomes
dormant until moisture arrives.

and human nutrition. Purgrain utilizes small amounts of buckwheat in a

is a grass that is grown throughout the world. There are several types
of wheat. Some wheats are planted in the spring for fall harvest, some
are planted in the fall for spring harvest. Winter wheats are mostly the
white variety, while many spring wheats are red. Hard wheats are used
for breads while soft wheats are used to make pastries. Many wheat by-products
are used for livestock feeds. Purgrain utilizes local soft wheat in several
is the fourth largest crop grown in the world. Most areas plant barley
in the spring and harvest in the summer, although some farmers plant in
the fall as a winter annual. The grain is used to make beer, in livestock
feeds, and in cooking. Barley, like other cereal grains, is high in carbohydrate.
millet (proso) is grown in many countries for human and bird food consumption.
This grass family plant is relatively drought resistant and will produce
in less than good soils. Millet has a very short growing season (less
than 80 days), so this crop may be grown in areas where other grains would
not do well. Purgrain uses white millet in a few mixes. The seed is high

high in oil and protein. Flax is usually pressed to capture the flax oil
(also called linseed oil). The remaining by-product is called linseed
meal, used in livestock feed.
is a high fat content seed that is also used for pressing to make oil.
The seed is high in protein and fat, also has a bitter taste.
is a grass plant that is grown in cooler areas of North America and Europe.
The majority of canary seed grown is used in caged bird food formulas.
Purgrain utilizes canary in a few mixes.
