    Why would you want to? It's lower in fat, higher in starch, and would cost an arm and a leg to feed in any significant amount

    Wheatgerm oil is pretty $$$ too. There are far cheaper oil alternatives that do just as well.

    The only reason I ask is because for my job we use wheat germ, and wheat germ gets buggy very easily, and if we even find one in the bag we cant use it. And the wheat germ company usually replaces the bag but dosent want to the buggy bag back, so we are allowed to take them, I have been using them at home for my chickens, I toss a handful to them every once in a while. So I was just wondering if I had gotten a bag that wasent buggy if it would be hamrful to use a handful or two to just get my horses supplements to him.
