Question Can damp oats be dried?

I'm really green, so bear with me. I have a bag of oats that were dampened by rain. The top of the bag is damp, but the rest of the oats "seem" dry. Just to make sure, can I scoop off the damp ones and dry the others in the oven, or should I just dump the whole bag?

Thanks for your replies.

The big fear with wet feed is mold. So if it rains, bag gets wet you can feed it at that time. Once the feed has sat there even a short time mold starts to grow. I know some people will feed moldy food but personally I just wont chance it and toss the feed out.

You could try spread it all out and check for mold, if you find any. Dump it.
