So my latest shipment of beet pulp smells funny. I dump it all into a big plastic barrel, and scoop it daily from there. A few days ago I noticed that it smelled a little different when I was feeding it. Today I noticed that the whole barrel smells awfully vinegar-ish. The thing I don't understand is that it's DRY in the barrel, so how could it have soured already? Plus its kept in my barn, which isn't heated and it's about as cold as I would expect a Maine winter to be... Is it possible that it is a bad batch and it was delivered that way?

Bump... I called the company today, they said I am the only one to have an issue with the beet pulp. I just don't know why it smells so weird. Anyone?

For several years our beet pulp came in paper bags. Our local dealer changed brands and the new bags were in plastic--similar to Standlee bags. That stuff stunk to high heaven. I ended up throwing it out because I just couldn't get over the difference in the smell. Just didn't seem right to me. Finally found someone local who carried the old kind.

This stuff comes in paper bags. I have had other kinds that are in a different type of woven plastic sort of stuff. I know I keep saying it smells like vinegar, but that's really what it smells like.
