"Streaker" Hulless Oat

Spring Planted.  15-16% Protein Level (that is higher than corn)

Oats grow quick in cool, moist conditions.  Used for hay or the oats themselves.  Hulless oats are perfect because no expensive de-hulling machine is needed to remove the hull. 

A must for any homesteader because it has so many uses.  Perfect for breakfast, in muffins or bread.  Feed the entire stalks to horses, goats or sheep for a high protein meal.

An 18-month study conducted in 1998 by the AAFC Research Centre in Lennoxville, QC concluded that hulless oats could replace both corn and the protein supplement in dairy rations with no impact on milk yield or components.

Thresh and feed the seed to the chickens.  There is no better way to fatten up broilers or pigs for that matter. 

Use the hay for the compost pile or as animal feed to ruminants. 

Sprout them for salads or use them as fresh sprouted greens for poultry.  Oats have so many uses!

Field notes:  Very impressed with Streaker oats.  Normally has 0% lodging.  Produces a great stand on land that had min. inputs.  Nice VERY large seeds compared to other hulless types. Well filled out plants and heads.  The only thing you could ask for is a bit more oil content on the seeds themselves.  Older var. have a higher oil content and richer flavor, but that also effects the storability.  By far one of our favorite hulless types for grain production and animal straw.

    I planted these a little late but they are performing beautifully. Rabbits broke into my patch and nibbled off the growing tips of many of the plants shortly after they emerged but they have recovered and I'll soon be harvesting a bunch of delicious oats. I planted it in a block out beside the vegetable garden but the plants are so pretty they could be used like an ornamental annual grass in the landscape as well.
