So I have been feeding my horses beet pulp for a while now. Just losing a horse Monday to complications during a Colic surgery, and I am trying to really focus on absolutely everything that goes into the stomachs of the rest of my horses. I use shredded beet pulp, which I soak. The ingredients are beet pulp and soy oil. On the bag it breaks down the nutrients which are: Crude Protein 7.5%, Crude Fat 2%, Crude Fiber 19%, and ADF 28%.
Now, I know I should have been paying this much attention the whole time, I am aware... I am not asking for people to bash on me for not knowing every exact amount of nutrients. I lost a horse the day before yesterday. I admit my faults, be gentile please.
That being said... What exactly does ADF stand for? I am very surprised that the fiber and fat aren't the highest percentages. I know some of the grain supplements I use contain ADF as well.
How much ADF is too much? How much is reasonable?
Thanks in advance.
