Re: Beet Pulp Shreds vs. Pellets?

Nancy C

Hi Laura

In the testing I have done pellets are usually higher in iron. Processing likely has an impact there. The amount was not huge though, and through r/s/r the iron content can be brought down to safer levels.

Pellets usually also have more molasses. This also is soaked and rinsed out.

The biggest reason I use the shreds is they can be made ready faster. Pellets take longer to soak than shreds.

Introduction is usually not an issue.
