Re: [RC] Beet pulp shortage in SE. - Truman Prevatt

This is not to surprising since more feed mills are using beet pulp in horse feeds. It used to be a stable for cows but with the price as high as it is they don't feed it much to cows any longer. I bet that Cargill, Southern States, Purnia, etc. don't have any problems getting it. They contract for as much as they project needing on a yearly basis and what is left over goes into bags and sold to consumers. When the beet pulp run low the consumers are the first to be left in the cold.

Another reason I like to feed a beet pulp based feed form a good company. You can always get it.

Just bought the last 5 bags amy feed dealer said he can get. Won't be any more till Oct. I buy 50 lb. pellets at 8.99 bag.(he may be slightly higher than the volume dealers Nw of here , but the gas cost to go there covers it.)Shreads w/ molasses, 40.b. is 11.00. If I can't find the pellets I may have to go to shreds or back to more grain.Cost would be about the same, just have to feed Tb 7-9 lbs of grain(still working in fat to lower this) instead of 3 lb of grain and two lbs. of beet pulp/oil.
