Re: [RC] [RC] Alfalfa Pellets - Bonnie Davis

Cubes are different than pellets.  Does not take as much heat to 'make'
cubes as pellets.  Plus the beetles could have gotten into the cubes AFTER
they were processed.

I read about a barn that got a bag of alphlfa cubes that had blister
beetles
in them and some horses died.It was in Horse Illustrated or something last
year.

There probably have been blister beetles in alfalfa used for pelleting
already.  But pelleting 'kills' the bugs and then they're ground up,
heated
and in the pelleting process the heating process for pelleting reaches a
180
degrees and hotter.  Not much 'bug' left by then.....

I am curious what the possibility is of blister beetles getting in
alfalfa
being used for pelleting.  Has this ever happened?  Could it happen?
If
not, why not?
