Can I feed wheat?

I just got a pair of 6 month old pigs that I'll raise for pork. We've got some wheat screenings left from cleaning the seed wheat can I feed them to the pigs?

Re: Can I feed wheat?

Have you tested the screenings for mycotoxins? That's number one on the list. If the amount is above maximum, you cannot feed them without blending them with "clean grain." There are plenty of sources for feed rations. Since I'm old school, I have a basic animal nutrition book and NebGuides. I know there is a limit on wheat inclusion in swine rations, but not certain what would be for the screenings.
