Beet Pulp Search

I have decided to try feeding beet pulp to two of our horses, but their doesn't seem to be any around my area. I was wondering where some of you Beet Pulp users buy. What is you favorite place to buy Beet Pulp?

I buy it at my local feed store.

I use the Blue Seal brand beet pulp pellets with no added molasses.

I bought some at tractor supply. I bought the pellets. It does have molasses in it, but is not necessary. Are you going to use it for weight issues? Any grainery should have it. You'll have to call around.

How long will 40LBS last for two large horses? I will be using it for weight issues.
There isn't any grainerys around here, I think I'll either buy some of the internet or drive 45 minutes to get some.

I would drive the 45min. to get it. Otherwise it may take 3-4 days to get it over the internet. Work up to 3 cups. But start out with one. You only need about 3cups per horse if in pellet form. I soak it first. Or start out with one cup shredded. I recommend soaking for 2 hours before you add grain and mix real good. Learned this from this forum(thank you very much)! I would say it should last a few weeks or more. If you want get two bags but store one in a cool area. I know having to drive somewhere sucks so if you can stock up on something, I do! Someone here will let you know about how much you will need. How much your horses weigh and such go into how much you will actually need. I know when your horses get to a weight you are happy with then you can cut back down again.

Tractor supply in our area only sells with molasses & I need without. I have to special order through a small farm store in our area. Since I buy it regularly the fellow has started keeping 6-8 bags on hand. I feed twice a day so I weigh out the evening portion right after breakfast and let it soak all day. Same at night and it soaks overnight.
