The price of Beet Pulp is skyrocketing
Beet Pulp without molasses has always been a feed staple here for the horses. I purchased a 40 pound bag today that was over $20. At that price it is no longer a good choice for adding bulk in the hind gut, when hay is cheaper! I'm just shaking my head in disbelief...that price is higher than some of the premium feeds that are fortified with vitamins, minerals, fats, and proteins. So why on earth would I want to pay in excess of $20 for a bag of the beet pulp? The world has indeed gone crazy. It makes me worry about being able to supply our horses with all they need in the future if the economy continues in this lag, while the prices of things continue to soar. I'm done ranting. ~E.G.
