The ICE Feed Wheat contract is an electronically traded agricultural product with physical delivery. ICE's futures and options on futures contracts for ICE Western Barley, ICE Canola and ICE Feed Wheat transitioned from the WCE trading platform to the ICE Trading Platform on Dec. 10, 2007.[1]


There are two sources of feed wheat. A cultivar can be licensed as a feed grain or feed grain can arise as a result of down grading. With regard to other classes of wheat, feed wheat arises when the percentage of other classes or non-registered varieties exceeds the tolerance specified for the lowest scheduled grade.[2]
