    I went to the feed store and bought a 50 lb sack of wheat. When I got home and opened it, it did not look like any wheat that I have bought before. It looked like maise, except it was not red like mase, but it was a tan color. One of you farmer fellers tell me what i got because I am a city boy and I don,t have a clue.

    Wheat is an enlongated seed most times and is tan in color. You may have gotten some treated wheat before and didn't know it (it will have a red tint to it).
    Different variaties of wheat will also have different charactoristics to them, some will be short and round, some will be long and thin and, colors can vary at times. I would venture to say that what you got is wheat and I say this because, bagged seed is made up in mass quantities and inspected.

    Isn't there a tag on the bag. It's been awhile since I bought feed or seed but I thought it was required by law to have a label attached.

    I finally got around to taking a picture. I know that it is wheat on the left, but what is the other stuff?

    that stuff on the right aint wheat at all and I'd say it is either a gold variety of milo or as small as the seeds are maybe it is millet
