Description

A high-fibre, low sugar and starch, conditioning feed. Ideal for aiding hydration or for older horses and ponies who struggle to chew longer length fibre.

Fibre Concentrate
The combination of alfalfa and unmolassed sugar beet pulp provides ‘slow releasing’ energy in the form of highly digestible fibre. Alfa-Beet is therefore ideal for weight gain without over-exuberance.

Veterans
Alfa-Beet is ideal for older horses and ponies, where the provision of good quality protein is important and where maintaining condition is often a struggle. Dental problems? – no problem! Alfa-Beet is soaked to produce an easily digestible mash.

Low Sugar
Alfalfa is naturally low in sugar and Alfa-Beet contains only a quarter of the sugar found in conventional molassed sugar beet. Fed with Dengie Hi-Fi Lite, Alfa-Beet is ideal for those horses and ponies, which require a lower sugar diet. Alfa-Beet is a suitable feed for the healthy maintenance of horses and ponies prone to laminitis.

How to soak Alfa-Beet!

 

Alfa-Beet is easy to use as it soaks to a mash much more quickly than conventional sugar beet pellets – when soaking in hot water it is ready in 15 mins, alternatively in cold water it takes 2 hours or can be left through the day or night to soak – whichever is more convenient! For soaking, we recommend one part product to three parts water.

One large Stubbs scoop of dry Alfa Beet pellets = 1.6Kg

One large Stubbs scoop of soaked Alfa-Beet holds 0.5kg of dry matter if soaked at a 1 part Alfa-Beet to 3 parts water ratio.
