25 to 30% of the diet, by weight, can be beet pulp. If you go too high
you can end up making them cut back on hay.

Figure 1 lb beet pulp (dry weight) = 2 lbs of hay

Figure out how much of each you are feeding now. Don't cut back the
hay, just increase the beet pulp to up to 25% of the total pounds fed a
day. If she's eating 15 pounds of hay, you can feed up to 5 pounds of
beet pulp (that's a LOT of soaked beet pulp)!

As long as she doesn't back off hay more than 2 pounds of hay for every
extra pound of beet pulp, you'll be roughly even. Really ought to get
your whole diet mineral balanced though.
