Beet pulp IS more balanced than bran, but it has 0.1% P and almost
0.7 % Ca on average. If you feed pounds of it, you just need to be
careful. You can balance it with alfalfa, clover, or trefoil forages,
or a supplement with extra calcium.
Sweet feed with molasses (which I am not
a fan of) does have more calcium than P on average due to the ratio
in the molasses. Cheers...Lynn
