Hereof, what does speedi beet do to horses?
It's starch free and low in sugar, so safe for laminitics. Speedi-Beet is extremely versatile. Feed it in small amounts to overweight horses as a carrier for a multivitamin and mineral supplement or in larger quantities to a poor doer for weight gain, or to a working horse for energy.
Also Know, how do you make speedi beets? Add 1 part dry Speedi-Beet to 5 parts water by weight. So ½kg of dry Speedi-Beet would require 2½ litres of water. Add more water to make a sloppier mash if you want to help your horse rehydrate. You can prepare in advance if you wish, but store in cool conditions and feed within 24 hours of soaking.
Also know, can you feed Speedi Beet on its own?
Yes. Speedi-Beet or Fibre-Beet can be fed in any situation. As they are soaked feeds, when fed before feeding other feeds such as forage, they will increase feeding time and so help allay boredom. Their palatability can also help mask the taste of any medication introduced.
Is Speedi Beet good for laminitis?
Beet pulp also acts as a prebiotic benefitting those bacteria that utilise hemicellulose. Feeding Speedi-Beet optimises fibre utilisation which further reduces reliance on sugar, starch and fat for energy, allowing a good energy supply, at reasonable protein levels and so avoiding risk factors for laminitis.
