Wild Spot is copra available in the US, is it in a dry form?
I'm not sure, to be honest. Yes, it looks like a brown powder/flour - You can feed it dry but most people feed it wet.

Beet pulp - I want to find out more about it, do you need hot water to soak it? I think of beets as what sugar is made of so have thought it would be too sweet ?
The beet pulp is what is left over after they take all the sugar out - So it is actually very low in sugars and that is why it is such a fantastic feed to laminitic ponies. I think our type of beet pulp is different to yours - Ours we can feed dry or soaked, it soaks in about 10 minutes in cold water and 5 minutes/almost instantly in warm water.

Good luck convincing the guy. I know the older farmers around here are pretty set in their ways and not always so open to different opinions LOL.
