Beet Pulp - Alberta

We're ready to try beet pulp to get some weight back on our horses, but no idea where to find it in the Calgary area? Any help would be appreciated!

What part of the city are you at?

The Mill Store on Hwy 2A on the way to Okotoks carries beet pulp. I would check them out for sure.

We're in the NW. Wonder if UFA would carry?

Hmmm, they may. I know some do. It's probably worth a phone call to your nearest one. :)

Any feed store should carry beet pulp. Be sure to soak it well in warm water first before feeding as the pellets tend to expand quite a bit. I have heard of some horses choking on it. I have used beet pulp before to help an OTTB gain weight. It seemed to work, but I also added a handful of calf-manna to the feed along with a couple of tablespoons of corn oil. The horse also had free choice hay.
