Manufactured by British Horse Feeds, Speedi-Beet is unmolassed sugar beet pulp cooked via a unique patented process to produce flakes which need a fraction of the soaking time of traditional sugar beet shreds or pellets.  It is high in fibre, particularly soluble fibre which is readily digested and yields slow release energy, as well as being low in sugar and containing no starch.

With a Digestible Energy content similar to that of a conditioning feed, Speedi-Beet is a useful source of non-heating calories and can be fed, alongside forage, as the sole additional calorie source, with Lo-Cal, Performance or Stud Balancer supplying those nutrients which are  be lacking in a forage/fibre-only diet.

Being starch-free, Speedi-Beet is particularly useful for those horses whose starch intake requires minimising or controlling, like those prone to laminitis or tying-up. It can also be fed as an additional fibre source to good-doers, as part of a calorie-controlled diet.  One Baileys measuring mug of Speedi-Beet swells to a whole Stubbs scoop of beet, when soaked, yet supplies no more calories than a scoop of Light Chaff.
FEEDING ADVICE
  • To provide a significant calorie contribution, up to 1.75kg of Speedi-Beet (dry weight) may be fed per day, alongside forage.  When a mix or cube is also fed, Speedi-Beet may be given in a separate bucket to avoid meals of compound feeds becoming too large.
  • When forage quality is poor or a horse is does not eat sufficient hay or haylage, Speedi-Beet or Fibre-Beet may be fed as an additional fibre source and mixed with other products from Baileys Fibre Range to provide a palatable partial forage alternative.
