The sugar beet pulp from the sugar production is, thanks to the easily assimilable carbohydrate content, an important source of feed, especially for polygastric animals. Its efficiency in terms of assimilation and biological effect can be substantially improved by the addition of macroelements (Ca, Mg, P) and microelements (Zn, Co, Fe, Mn, Cu). These elements react with the sugar beet pulp compounds to form specific chelates. In order to preserve and maintain the nutritional value of the premix, the realization process involves a drying operation. In view of this, experiments have been carried out to determine the maximum moisture content that ensures preservation and optimum drying conditions. This paper presents how the percentage of micro-and macro-elements used and the drying temperature influence the drying speed of the premix
