MOLASSES is a dark brown, viscous liquid produced as a co-product of the production of sugar. After dissolving sugars out at high temperature, the crystals of sugar settle out as the liquid cools leaving the molasses, much of which was traditionally mixed back with the pulped fibres to produce molassed sugar beet feed.


Feeding Rates

Beef Cattle Up to 10% can be included in beef diets depending on the nature of other feeds in the mix and subsequent storage facilities for the finished ration

Dairy Cows Ideal for complete diets at up to 3kg/ hd/day. Normal feed rates between 1kg and 2kg
