PRESSED BEET PULP

After juice has been extracted from sugar beet root, the pulp that remains is called Beet Pulp, which is used for animal diet all over the world. The consumption of beet pulp makes animals healthier, especially milking animals as beet pulp increases their milking yield. The beet pulp can be preserved to make silage. If silage is stocked in an ideal manner it can be preserved for a whole year, especially when other alternate fodders are not available. It can also be mixed with wheat, barley and alpha or with any other concentrate.
