Unmolassed Sugar beet pellets are vegetable matter, which are high in digestible fibre, high energy, and low protein.
Sugar beets are processed for sugar, and once the sugar is extracted it leaves sugar beet pulp. The sugar pulp is then processed into pellets, making it easier to handle.
Beet pellets are a great food supplement for the diet of horses, cattle, sheep, and goats. They are especially useful for under weight animals, due to their high calorie/energy content.
Beet pellets are dried and due to this dehydrated state, it is advisable that they are soaked (completely submerged) in water for at least 15 – 30 minutes prior to feeding or until properly softened. Soaking can help reduce the sugar content of the pellets.
The soaking process and access to water for the animals, will ensure they do not become dehydrated.
