Dengie Alfa-Beet is a low sugar conditioning feed for horses and ponies. A blend of alfalfa and sugar beet, Alfa-Beet is ideal for extra condition or energy for work, for fizzy horses and ponies in addition to older horses who are having difficulties chewing.
Fibre ConcentrateThe combination of alfalfa and unmolassed sugar beet pulp provides ‘slow releasing’ energy in the type of highly digestible fibre. Alfa-Beet is due to this fact ideal for weight gain without over-exuberance.VeteransAlfa-Beet is ideal for older horses and ponies, where the provision of good quality protein is very important and where maintaining condition is continuously a struggle. Dental problems? – no problem! Alfa-Beet is soaked to produce an easily digestible mash.Low SugarAlfalfa is naturally low in sugar (water soluble carbohydrates) and Alfa-Beet accommodates 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 an acceptable feed for the healthy maintenance of horses and ponies at risk of laminitis and is approved by the Laminitis Agree with.Short Soak Time – Hot Soak in 15 mins!Alfa-Beet is easy to use as it soaks to a mash a lot 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 = 1.6KgOne 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.
