Intakes of beet pulp above 30 to 40% of dry matter intake may suppress appetite?!
I was reading one of the many file articles and ran across this statement, ..."-intakes of beet pulp above 30 to 40% of dry matter intake may suppress appetite to the point they don't eat enough hay."
So would intake of beet pulp in the 20-25% of dry matter range potentially suppress appetite SOME so that Sierra isn't always ravenous? She's got a belly on her but I don't dare not have grass hay in front of her 7/24 lest her stomach ulcers flare.
