    Hi ketal,

    I took this from "Wikipedia" see this and go through that link. ok?

    The common oat plant (Avena sativa) is a species of cereal grain grown for its seed, which is known by the same name (usually in the plural, unlike other grains). While oats are suitable for human consumption as oatmeal and rolled oats, one of the most common uses is as livestock feed. Oats make up a large part of the diet of horses and are regularly fed to cattle as well. Oats are also used in some brands of dog and chicken feed.

    Oat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    one more link is here. so please go through and learn about Oats.

    What is Oats?
