Citrus Pellets

Citrus Pellets

Similar in digestible fibre levels, energy and fermenting sugar to sugar beet pulp, but slightly lower in protein. The fibre has a buffering capacity in the rumen. Citrus pulp can contain oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit, tangerines etc. Orange citrus is recognised as the best as it is more palatable, has a better ph and contains more suitable acids which, in turn, minimise rumen upsets. Ideal for all ruminants and the pleasant aroma encourages intake.

Storage / Processing

Material to have been stored in compliance with DEFRA code of practice for the control of salmonella

As a moist product it can be fed immediately or clamped. As a dried product, it will store well for 3 months.


Feeding rates are estimates, and other factors, such as animal health and environment, can have a greater impact on how animals perform. There is no guarantee that animals will perform as expected if fed the suggested rates. Rations should be balanced to provide enough energy and protein for animals, and they should include enough forage to keep the rumen healthy. Animals also need access to fresh water at all times.
