PuraBeet - Horse Feed of the Month - November 2012
PuraBeet is a wonderful feed for the winter. It is really economical and goes a very long way as it soaks up to around six times its original volume. Use it as part of a complete soft diet for oldies with dental issues, as partial hay replacer and as a bulker for feeds and to extend eating time.
PuraBeet is a good source of soluble fibre and is very easily digested. It is much better than bran for making a mash, has good quality protein (though it has to be said, not in large amounts!) and is a very good source of calcium. It is naturally very low in sugar as all that can be, has all been taken out at the sugar factory. Horses like the taste so it can be useful for disguising medicines or just encouraging a good appetite. It is safe for horses that tie up, those with metabolic issues and laminitis. It will not cause hotting up. We add nothing to our PuraBeet.Read more
