Kathleen, if you're going to grow oats, maybe this thing would be of value to you, a roller mill from Lehman's: http://www.lehmans.com/shopping/product/detailmain.jsp?itemID=1145&itemType=PRODUCT&RS=1&keyword=oat+roller
Also, you might look into naked or hullless oats. Most oats have a very tight husk that is difficult for a homesteader to remove. Naked oats lose their husks during threshing. Johnny's, Seeds of Change and Bountiful Gardens carries them.
