An awnless hard red winter wheat that was developed for grazing, but in addition to high forage yields it also has a great grain yield throughout Texas.
The seed heads of most hard winter wheat varieties have awns or beards that are typically about an inch long. In awnless wheat varieties, the awns are very short or non-existent.
Cattle grazing wheat after the seed heads have emerged are “annoyed” by the bristly awns in their face and generally prefer awnless wheat. The awnless trait makes it a lot more valuable for those wanting to graze it out.
