Re: [RC] RC: Alfalfa Pellets - jen

Karen...two questions, why don't you want molasses?  Is it too much sugar?  and Why do they put molasses in?

This is the problem with pellets that I have heard. Lower quality hay is used in many instances. Beccy in Ut.
 
*Couple of thoughts.....for some horses, this may be a good thing...lower protein, they can safely eat more...for
example, who would want alfalfa pellets made out of "dairy quality" alfalfa?
 
I would be very hesitant to feed alfalfa pellets for the same reasons I feel very little alfalfa (protein too high, mineral imbalances).....however, many feed stores sell a mix of oat hay/alfalfa hay pellets, this seems like a better mix to me, and if I had a good source of reasonably priced beet pulp that didn't have molasses added back into it, I would feed quite a bit of that too....
