Unbeetable Feeds
Unbeetable Feeds - Beet Pulp Pellets

Beet Pulp Pellets

Beet pulp is the fibrous portion of the sugar beet, left after the sugar and liquid has been removed.  It is mechanically pressed, dried, and then pelletized into a 5/16” (8mm) diameter pellet. The fiber in beet pulp is highly digestible making it a good non-starch energy source for cattle and horses.  It is a popular feed used by dairy farmers as a structural carbohydrate, and is also widely used as an ingredient in the production of pet foods.

Unbeetable Feeds offers beet pulp pellets in bulk, or in 50-pound bags.  The 50-pound bags are more convenient to handle, making it a favorite at feed stores.  The bags, shipped on pallets, allows a manageable package of feed for smaller ranches or farms that raise horses, cattle or other farm animals.

BULK BEET PULP PELLETS:

USES

In growing and finishing diets, beet pulp pellets can replace corn silage or other forages.

For stock cows, it can fill energy requirements and stretch homegrown forage supplies. In dairy rations, beet pulp is an excellent source of structural carbohydrates, lowers the potential for rumen acidosis and improves butter-fat test.  It is also a high-energy, easy-to-digest food that helps to stimulate milk production.

In pet food, beet pulp is used as lower tract cleanser as well as stool firmer.  It is an excellent source of fermentable fiber.

Please consult your nutritionist for uses specific to your animals.

STORAGE AND HANDLING

Beet Pulp Pellets can be stored by unloading on a cement slab, preferably covered, or they can be stored in conventional hopper bottom bins. They can be transferred in hopper, end-dump or live bottom trucks. Feeding and handling will depend on the method of storing and the feeding systems available but they can be easily handled in traditional automated systems or front-end loader mixer wagon combinations.
