WHY DOES DENGIE ALFA-BEET HAVE A SHORT SOAK TIME?
Alfa-Beet is made combining alfalfa pellets and sugar beet pellets into a single pellet, which means that this product essentially undergoes a double grinding process. Grinding disrupts the fibre structure decreasing swelling and water binding capacity so that Alfa-Beet is readily soaked.
