Fibre-Beet® is designed to be fed as a wet feed (liquid diet) which is the most natural way to feed your horse. By combining Alfalfa and Speedi-Beet® together into one easy to use unique lozenge shape, Fibre-Beet® offers an excellent source of highly digestible fibre in a liquid form and provides your horse with slow release energy without fizz. Formulated using all the benefits of Speedi-Beet® incorporated with good quality alfalfa. An ideal soft feed for recovering or veteran horses and ponies where maintaining condition is often difficult and teeth may be in poor condition.
Simply mix 3 parts of water to 1 part of Fibre-Beet by weight, that’s about 1 1/2 parts of water to 1 part of Fibre-Beet® by volume.
Leave to soak for 45 minutes using cold water or 15 minutes using hot water (fantastic in the winter to warm your horse).
Once Fibre-Beet® has been soaked it can be fed straight away or it can be kept in a cool environment, enabling you to still prepare in advance if you wish.
As a guide horses require 2% of body weight as feed per day. At least 25% must be fed as forage or high fibre alternatives.
Fibre-Beet® can be fed up to 40% of the daily feed, depending on circumstances.
As a forage replacer:
When forage is unavailable, Fibre-Beet® may be fed as a substitute – soak prior to feeding. Feed 1.0kg of soaked Fibre-Beet for every 100kg of body weight as a daily ration. Split and feed at least twice a day. If grazing, offer at turnout and after stabling. If 24 hour grazing, offer as required.
