Granulated pulp

Granulated pulp

Granulated sugar beet pulp is an extracted chopped sugar beet, feed waste of sugar production for cattle feeding. This product may be stored for long time and thanks to it is widely spread in cattle breeding.
Granulated dried pulp is grey green cylinders, 8-10 mm in diameter containing up to 88% of dry matters.

Usage

In terms of feeding value pulp takes medium place between the oat and hay, it contains by 1.5 times more digestible matters than hay, and almost as much as oat. Pulp is a precious source of fibre which is the best natural energy substrate. Furthermore, sugar beet pulp contains calcium (in sugar production, in the process of extraction limestone is added).

The advantages of storage and transporting of the sugar beet granulated pulp are universally recognized: sparing of space and long storage period, as well as the possibility of transporting of bulks in a small space are important factors in calculation of costs today.

The manufactured beet dry pulp meets the requirements of National State Standard DSTU 4647:2006 "Technical Specifications. Dried pulp".
