Pressed Pulp

Pressed Pulp

On arrival at a sugar factory, beet is sampled then bulked before entering the factory. Prior to processing, it is cleaned and sliced into smaller pieces after which the sugar is washed out using water at 70°C. After sugar extraction, the sliced pieces of sugar beet are mechanically pressed to remove excess liquid. This co-product is known as Pressed Pulp.

A palatable forage and partial concentrate extender. Ideal for ruminants, but not pigs and poultry. With a typical DM of 20 > 30% this product is a useful energy feed for dairy cows, beef cattle and sheep. Ideal for use in complete feeds or for use as a midday feed.

This buffer feed and moist concentrate is a high energy succulent to supplement silage when supplies are limited or the quality poor. Pressed Pulp improves the energy density of rations based on straw and hay. In complete diet systems, its high energy density and physical nature enhance the quality of the mix.

Storage / Processing

Should be tipped in a clean dry area
If fed fresh, it should be used within 5 - 7 days of leaving the factory
If being kept for feeding at a later date, it should be ensiled and fully sealed.
Ensure all air and water is excluded when ensiling to successfully store the product.
Remembering to compact as much as possible
Bulk density approx 800 - 100kg/m³ when clamped
Can be pitted up to a height of approx 2m

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


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.
