Sugar Beet Feed

A mainstay of British livestock feeding since the 1920s, Trident sugar beet feed is the most effective source of digestible fibre-based energy available for ruminants, horses and ponies*.

Supplied as a robust dry pellet (in bulk or bagged), as dry shreds or as a moist feed, there’s a Trident sugar beet feed to suit every feeding system, from simple feeding out in troughs to mixer wagons and mechanical in-parlour and out-of-parlour feeders.

High levels of palatability will drive feed intakes, whilst the slowly available energy helps buffer against digestive upsets in high-starch diets, leading to improved feed conversion efficiency and increased animal performance. It’s the ideal feed on which to base simple, ‘rumen-friendly’ mixes for sheep, lambs or youngstock, and a key ingredient in high digestible-fibre blends and high performance beef and dairy rations.

Digestible fibre – buffers against acidosis, the ideal partner to high-starch feeds.

Highly palatable – drives growth and performance by increasing feed intakes.

Low protein – complements higher protein, low-fibre feeds like cereals and low-fibre forages.

Energy supply – slowly available digestible fibre balances energy supply for optimum digestion.

Molassed options – offer additional energy as sugars to stimulate fibre digestion in ruminants.

Equibeet is a low-sugar, non-molassed sugar beet feed designed specifically as a non-heating, high-fibre bagged feed for horses and ponies* that’s also ideal as part of a feeding strategy to reduce the incidence of laminitis.
