Triticale (Triticosecale) is a hybrid crop which inherited the excellent grain quality and high yield potential of wheat (Triticum spp.) and the good tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses factors of rye (Secale cereale). As an energy crop, triticale has now been used for human food and livestock feed for many years. The main agronomic goal has been to improve the properties of triticale grains over those of wheat, corn, rye, barley, etc., making triticale an attractive option for increasing global food production. This paper discusses the advantages of using triticale as a pig feed.
