Feeding Value Of Spelt

What is the food value of spelt? It is a Russian variety of wheat, and

yet, I am informed, it has about the same value as a stock food that

barley has.

We have no analysis of spelt at hand. It is presumably like that of

barley, as you suggest, because the spelt has an adhering chaff as

barley has. This fact makes it better for feeding than wheat, not in

nutritive content, but because the chaff tends to distribute the starchy

material, making it more easily digestible; just as barley and oats are

better than ordinary wheat for stock feeding.
