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.

Wonder if beet pulp is available at feed stores or where in Ohio?
