Abstract: In order to determine of fermentation characteristics of treated and untreated barley grain the experiment was carried out. The treatment contain Untreated Barley Grain (UBG), Teated Barley Grain at 120C, 5 (TBG 1) and 20 (TBG2) and 100 C, 5 (TBG 3) and 100C, 20 (TBG 4). The gas production was measured at 2, 4, 8, 16, 24, 36 and 48 h. The gas production data were fitted by the equation of P =A(1-e-ct). The gas production of treated barley grain at 48 h was lower than the other treatments (p<0.05). Also the gas production of soluble and insoluble fractions (A) and rate of gas production in most of treated barley grain were lower than the other treatments (p<0.05). Treatment of barley grain by heat had low gas production resulting and improved efficiencies of barley grain and increased by pass protein.
