The objective of this experiment was to evaluate ensiling methods for more efficient and long-lasting preservation of sugar beet pulp, which is an energy-rich cheap feedstuff. For this reason, during ensiling the dry matter of sugar beet pulp was increased to 20% by adding wheat straw or grass hay. On the other hand, 1% urea + 5% beet molasses (SBPSM), and 0% urea + 5% beet molasses (SBPHM) were added to these silages containing wheat straw or grass hay respectively. Two kinds of beet pulp silages, corn silage and grass hay, were utilized in lambs in this experiment. In the digestion trial, organic matter digestibilities were 60.39, 58.99, 55.80, and 60.03% (P
