Dressing Beet Pulp

Posted via Mobile Device

Is there something I can mix with beet pulp that's nit sugary to get my litttle mare to eat it? The pasture is a little dry and I don't want to start haying them yet so I am going to supplement a little with the beet.pulp. My gelding eats his, then goes and finishes hers because she leaves it laying.

I've never dressed it before. What would it wear? Lederhosen?

Get a ration balancer. They are useful in normal times, but are particularly good at times like this when grass quality is not optimum. You don't have to use much and it should get them to eat the BP.

I find it doesn't take much to get them onto beet pulp.The first times they dotend to turn their nose up it, to so I mix it with their grain{oats}.I gradually increase the amount of BP,decreasing grain. They catch on to it pretty quick & gobble it up plain after a while

I mix soaked Timothy pellets in with my boy's beet pulp, seems to make it more palatable. Makes his face all green and slobbery, it makes me laugh! You could add alfalfa pellets too if you prefer.

I thought about adding the alfalfa, but my gelding is hyper enough as it is, and I can't garuntee he will stay in his own pan unless I out then up to feed. I've never fed Timothy pellets, I could try that.

Until she starts eating her beet pulp you'll have to seperate them, just tying up your gelding for an hour should do it. Anytime I feed something they are not used to and not sure of I mix in some of their regular feed until they get a taste for what I want them to eat.

What grain or pelleted feed does he really like? That is what you mix with the beet pulp to get him use to it.Mine aren't fussy having Alfalfa pellets in their's they eat everything up & leave the pellets till last & often leave them to finish up later
Agree that you can't leave them together to eat till he eats up his a quickly as the other one.
