How to Feed Whole Sugar Beets
Sugar beets are an ideal supplemental food source for ruminant livestock. They are high in energy and digestible fiber. Processed beet products such as beet pulp and molasses are often fed to livestock or incorporated into manufactured pellets as a binding agent. Ruminants may also be fed whole, unprocessed sugar beets. However, to minimize the choking hazard, whole beets should be cut into smaller pieces before they are fed to livestock.
