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.

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 part Alfa-Beet ratio.

Reviews

  1. Joanne

    My elderly thoroughbred was beginning to get fussy with his usual ration, and was finding it difficult to chew chaff based fibres. Having started him on Alfa-beet, he now gobbles his meals down. The moisture also softens his conditioning cube and I have a much happier horse. He loves this feed – a great replacement for chaff with all the extra benefits!
