Maize has the highest energy source of most of the cereals. It contains more oil than in wheat or barley; however, it is lower in protein compared to wheat. The seeds of maize are high in starch. The starch is slower to degrade on the rumen compared to wheat and barley due to being partially resistant (30%) to ruminal degradation, therefore crushing the maize makes it easier to get the goodness from the grain. Maize is very low in calcium.
