Sugar beet pulp is a by-product from the processing of sugar beets into sugar. Beet pulp is extracted grounded sugar beet. It is used as livestock feed and it can be fed fresh, dried and ensiled (fermented beet pulp). Sugar beet pulp is a by-product from the processing of sugar beet which is used as fodder for cattle and other livestock. It is supplied either as dried flakes or as compressed pellets. Sugar beet pulp is a highly palatable feed with good energy levels. Sugar beet pulp is low in sugar and other non-structural carbohydrates. Contains highly digestible fibre which is suited to ruminants as it maintains rumen condition and encourages acetate production. It has a high liquid absorbency and can, therefore, be used as a silage additive to retain the feed value from effluent. Another by-product from the processing of raw sugar cane is cane molasses. This is usually mixed with the sugar beet pulp to form molasses sugar beet when it is dried and pressed and distributed as shreds or pellets. The fibrous residues of sugar beet comprise mainly cellulose, which is highly digestible. Thus when fed with an appropriate supplement of degradable protein, sugar beet is an exceptionally suitable feed for ruminants, helping to promote optimum rumen conditions and boosting milk production. After the sugar has been extracted from sugar beets, the fibrous portion of the sugar beet is dehydrated. Dried beet pulp shreds have a very low bulk density so are often processed into pellets or cubes for transport. Both shreds and pelleted /cubed beet pulp is used in animals feed. Despite being called sugar beet pulp, beet pulp contributes very little sugar to the diet. Beet pulp, which commonly is used in beef cattle diets as a supplement or roughage replacement in finishing diets, is the beet shreds left over from processing. This feed is high in energy and fiber. Beet pulp is supplied either as dried flakes or as compressed pellets. Despite being a byproduct of sugar beet processing, beet pulp itself is low in sugar and other non structural carbohydrates, but high in energy and fiber and contains 0.8 % calcium and 0.5 % phosphorus.
