My horse is at good pasture 24 hours a day and I would like to feed beet
pulp, how do I balance it for Ca and P?
Since beet pulp has almost twice as much Ca as P and wheat bran has more
P than Ca could'nt I just safely feed 50% bran and 50% beet pulp?

The pasture has a lot of clover and also Lespedeza which I believe are
high protein high calcium forages.

Can you purchase the neccesary supplements to add to the beet pulp and is
it worth it?

Any info would be greatly appreciated and read with earnest.
