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 as well as older horses who are having difficulties chewing.

Fibre Concentrate

The combination of alfalfa and unmolassed sugar beet pulp provides 'slow releasing' energy in the form of highly digestible fibre. Alfa-Beet is therefore ideal for weight gain without over-exuberance.

Veterans

Alfa-Beet is ideal for older horses and ponies, where the provision of good quality protein is important and where maintaining condition is often a struggle. Dental problems? - no problem! Alfa-Beet is soaked to produce an easily digestible mash.

Low Sugar

Alfalfa is naturally low in sugar (water soluble carbohydrates) and Alfa-Beet contains 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 a suitable feed for the healthy maintenance of horses and ponies prone to laminitis and is approved by the Laminitis Trust.

Short Soak Time - Hot Soak in 15 mins!

Alfa-Beet is easy to use as it soaks to a mash much 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 = 1.6Kg

One 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.
