Dietary Energy-Fiber feed

We currently offer sugar beet pulp pellets, molasses and wheat bran (finely ground and pelleted) as energy and fibre feed materials. Beside of conventional quality, all are also available in organic quality, for organic farming.

Sugar beet pulp pellets

AGRANA produces molassed and unmolassed sugar beet pulp pellets. Sugar beet pulp pellets are valuable feed resource and highly palatable, with high amount of digestible fiber, particularly for ruminants, amounting to 15 % to 18 %. The fiber fraction primarily consists of cellulose, hemicellulose and pectins; where as in contrast to starch and sugar, it is slowly degraded in the rumen.

 

 

Molasses

Molasses are a syrup-like, dark brown by-product of the sugar production,  containing beside of sugar, organic acids and minerals. Due to its properties, as a dust binder and flavor enhancer, improve the mixed feed quality,  having a positive effect on the feed intake. Molasses represent also a quickly fermentable source of energy for rumen microorganisms.

Wheat bran

Wheat bran is a by-product of the dry milling of cleaned wheat into flour. It consists principally of fragments of the outer layers from the wheat, combined with small amounts of starchy endosperm of the wheat kernel. Due to its dietary characteristics, it is widely applied in special feed for gestating and lactating sows diets, or as a component in the concentrate of ruminant diets.

Current news about molassed sugar beet pulps

At the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna, in a recent study was tested, the dietary inclusion of molassed sugar beet pulp, as a substitute for maize grain in high-yielding Simmental cows, in the early lactation stage.
