    Anyone use it or try it for their pigs? I fed soaked beet pulp pellets to my older horses in the past. I feed a lot of milk, but just bought two calves, so thought maybe I could soak some beet pulp pellets in the pig's milk to add some more 'mmph' to their diet? Or I could just stick with rolled barley and cob.

    it is a filler. We use it to fill pigs up without weight gain for weigh in's for fair.

    Okay, thanks for the feedback. NOT recommended for a meat project, lol.
