    No one is suggesting that the OP feeds beet pulp as a hay replacer - but as an addition too. I find that my horses get very bored with the hay no matter how good it is and having something different encourages them to eat - and for most of the year I also soak my hay because it reduces the sugar levels in it and the inevitable dust from the environment and pollens
    I find that the more extra moisture I can get in my horses the better, especially in hot dry weather and in the winter when they never see a blade of green stuff here because it all dies back or is mostly buried under snow
    I am sure that plenty of people have done an analysis of these various products because from time to time there are reports of companies failing to supply 'what it says on the label' so if a company says "guaranteed analysis' then they are asking for a lot of legal trouble if they are a long way out
    According to Tractor Supply (one of the most used widespread chains of feed suppliers in the US) a typical bag of complete feed that has added oils, vitamins and minerals such as
    Nutrena Safe Choice Special Care costs $17.99 for a 50lb bag
    Producers Pride Plain Rolled oats (cheapest quality) $16.99 for a 50lb bag
    A complete feed that has higher levels of nutrition will cost only a few $'s more
