A UNIQUE SOAKABLE COMBINATION OF SPEEDI-BEET, ALFALFA AND OTHER FIBRES
Those requiring additional calories from highly digestible fibre
Horses needing forage alternatives in the stable or field
Those needing to gain condition, while controlling starch or sugar intake
Manufactured by British Horse Feeds, Fibre-Beet combines all the benefits of Speedi-Beet with additional fibre and quality protein from alfalfa and oatfeed. Research has shown that combining the soluble “superfibres” of sugar beet pulp with cellulose, provided here by alfalfa and oatfeed, improves the digestibility of the alfalfa. This makes Fibre-Beet an ideal accompaniment to a balancer, mix or cube for horses who require additional calories and quality protein, for condition and top line, from a non-heating, slow release source.
Fibre-Beet is particularly useful for performance horse, especially those who consume reduced amounts of forage, as it can increase fibre intake without the “bulk” of hay or haylage. When soaked, it is ideal for feeding to endurance horses at vet gates, or to eventers after cross country, to encourage fluid consumption and aid rehydration, especially when electrolytes are added.
- Like Speedi-Beet, Fibre-Beet, is quickly and easily prepared by soaking in cold or hot water. Full instructions are included on the bag.
- Fibre-Beet is low in starch and sugar so suitable for those prone to laminitis, and others for whom starch intake needs controlling, as part of a fully balanced diet.
