What are some by-products used in horse feeds?
Some of the more popular by-products used in horse feeds include molasses, which is very palatable for horses and helps prevent settling out or sorting of ingredients in mixed feeds; and beep pulp, which contains highly digestible fiber that possesses great water-holding capacity. Others include wheat bran and wheat middlings, both of which are high in phosphorus; rice bran, also high in phosphorous and higher in fat than wheat middlings; soybean meal (high-protein and low-fat) and soy hulls (a source of very digestible fiber).
