Dengie Alfa-Beet is a conditioning feed for horses and ponies with no added sugar. A blend of alfalfa and sugar beet, Alfa-Beet is ideal for extra condition or energy for work, for fizzy horses and ponies as well as older horses who are having difficulties chewing. Alfa-Beet is approved by The Laminitis Trust.
Following the news that some racehorses have tested positive for morphine as a possible result of feed contamination, Dengie can confirm that none of these cases have been linked to any Dengie alfalfa-based products.
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.
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.
Alfalfa is naturally low in sugar (water soluble carbohydrates) and Alfa-Beet contains only a quarter of the water-soluble carbohydrates 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 and is approved by the Laminitis Trust.
Short Soak Time - Hot Soak in 15 mins!
Alfa-Beet is easy to use as it soaks to a mash much more quickly than conventional sugar beet pellets. For soaking, we recommend three parts water to one part Alfa-Beet.
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 3 parts water to 1 par Alfa-Beet ratio.
