[RC] Oats - Sherman

My vote is that the innards and nutrition are still in the hull, since my manure pile always has a great oat field on top of it.(:>)

   I think I have read that what you are seeing in the manure is the
hull of the oat, but the starchy innards have been largely digested as
they pass throught the digestive system. Some of the fiber in the hull
is indigestible. Now, I've never actually separated an oat from my
horse's manure and examined it that closely. That would be icky. I don't
do icky. Lots of real men don't do icky.   Dr Q
