Feeding Beet Pulp


Beet pulp is a common horse supplement. Many horse owners in our area feed beet pulp, especially those with senior horses. The fibers in beet pulp shreds are a by-product of the sugar industry. Sugar beets are processed to extract the sugars and the remaining fibrous parts of the beet are then dehydrated. This material is used as an ingredient in many commercial horse feed rations, and is also sold by itself for those wishing to supplement with it. This is an excellent product to get high quality fiber into a horse's diet. Hence the popularity among senior horses.
