bran vs. whole grains
    #3422339 - 11/29/04 09:42 AM (12 years, 14 days ago)

I've seen whole oats/corn/wheat in feed stores, but haven't noticed rice or oat bran anywhere....I see many recipes suggest like 20% bran in wood shavings, where do people get bran and what is the diff. between bran and just cereal grains--are the grains too rich to use in place of bran?

Thanks,
Mark

My feed store keeps bran in the back room along with other good stuff like urea and hydrated lime. Bran is rich in nitrogen/protein plus it?s dirt cheap!

I get my bran from the bulk section of the grocery store ($0.45/lb for wheat bran, a bit more for rice bran). I imagine they stock it for people making bran muffins and such.

im seeking the same answer so i'll bring this back up.

- are the grains too rich to use in place of bran?

i can get it in a health shop but you are paying for the lable and im not looking for bulk amounts. just wondering if theres anything else that could be used that comes a bit cheaper, maybe rolled oats?

I get bran from the health food store. Rice bran will usually be in the refrigerator section and much more expensive. Wheat bran requires no refrigeration. If they don't have it in stock, have them order it. You don't want to use whole grains in sawdust. Use up to 20% bran and 10% gypsum.

can't be that expensive. you can get a 25kg bag here for the equiv of $10 US. I did have to pick it up direct from the distribution site though.

I get 25 pound bags of gypsum at my local nursery for $3. That means large substrate blocks only have a few pennies worth of gypsum in them and yields are significantly increased, making the gypsum pay for itself many times over.
