High levels of palatability will drive feed intakes, whilst the slowly available energy helps buffer against digestive upsets in high-starch diets, leading to improved feed conversion efficiency and increased animal performance. It’s the ideal feed on which to base simple, ‘rumen-friendly’ mixes for sheep, lambs or youngstock, and a key ingredient in high digestible-fibre blends and high performance beef and dairy rations.

Digestible fibre – buffers against acidosis, the ideal partner to high-starch feeds.
Highly palatable – drives growth and performance by increasing feed intakes.
Low protein – complements higher protein, low-fibre feeds like cereals and low-fibre forages.
Energy supply – slowly available digestible fibre balances energy supply for optimum digestion.
Molassed options – offer additional energy as sugars to stimulate fibre digestion in ruminants.
Equibeet is a low-sugar, non-molassed sugar beet feed designed specifically as a non-heating, high-fibre bagged feed for horses and ponies* that’s also ideal as part of a feeding strategy to reduce the incidence of laminitis.
