Standlee Premium Beet Pulp is a high fiber source for horses. Beet Pulp can be fed to mature horses at a rate of 0.05% to 0.2% of body weight/day depending on level of activity. For a 1000 lb. horse, this equates to 1/2-2 lb. of dry beet pulp per day. Gradually introduce beet pulp into the diet during a 7-10 day period. Beet Pulp is a dehydrated product and is recommended to be soaked (completely submerged) in water for a minimum of 15 minutes and a maximum of 30 minutes prior to feeding, or until properly softened. Never feed moldy or insect infested beet pulp to horses. Always provide free-access to fresh, clean water.
