Okay guys, short question. Does anybody have the basic 'x kg of beet pulp per y kg of horse'?
I can't find it ANYWHERE, and would like to see the ranges for maintenance / weight gain. I've seen studies saying you can replace up to 50% of forage with beet pulp (huh, interesting) but nothing on how much per horse on top of forage.
As for weight gain I find beet pulp works well with copra. Both easily digestable fiber with low NSC.
Beet pulp is high in Ca with little or no P. Copra has higher P and low Ca. So they compliment each other (you need a higher Ca to P ratio). Of course all mineral needs and ratios really should be taken into account (iron, copper, etc....)
Good for horses thay need help putting on weight, but if you have easier keepers you won't want to give them to much and just rely on less fattening forage for more of the diet.
