What are you trying to achieve?

Need Feature Benefit
Drive intake A highly palatable feed. Can stimulate intakes of less palatable feeds, increasing milk and meat production.
Increase milk fat %

A good source of digestible fibre.

Provides the building blocks for milk fat synthesis, increasing value per litre.
Increase energy intakes Good levels of non-starch digestible fibre energy. Allows energy intakes to be increased without increasing the risk of acidosis associated with cereal feeding.
Minimise risk of acidosis High content of digestible fibre. Assists in maintaining an optimum rumen pH.
Feeding flexibility Pellet durability. Suitable for use 'in parlour' automated and floor feeding systems. Can be transferred via auger systems.

The predicted responses (benefits) assume that the specified nutrient, physical or structural dietary components are limiting livestock performance in the current ration.

Additional information

Method of production

Maxibeet is a co-product from sugar production. Once the sugar has been diffused out from the beet, the fibrous residues are dried and then pelleted to produce the final product.

Quality Assurance

Maxibeet is FEMAS assured (or a recognised equivalent). Maxibeet (Dried (sugar) beet feed) is listed under number 4.1.10 in the EU Catalogue of Feed Materials.

Legal disclaimer

Suggested feeding rates are produced as a guide only and many other factors may have an overriding effect on animal response; no performance guarantee can be given. Rations should be carefully balanced for energy and protein, contain sufficient forage to maintain rumen function and be fortified with an appropriate vitamin and mineral supplement. Animals must have constant access to clean water.
