Beet pulp is made from the fibrous material left over after the sugar is extracted from the sugar beet. It's formed from dried sugar beet pulp with a small amount of molasses added during the drying process. It is an excellent source of digestible fiber, with relatively low crude protein content. Beet pulp is an excellent ingredient for complete horse feeds, where no hay or a limited amount of hay or pasture is fed.
Beet pulp is great for horses known as hard keepers or other animals that need to gain weight, for older horses or horses with respiratory problems such as heaves. Additionally, beet pulp is a great choice for a convalescing horse or while recovering from an illness or surgery.
