Molasses

The product is 50% sugars, making it extremely palatable to all stock. Although it is a liquid, it is very high in solids (75%). Ideal for ruminants as it is the simplest form of energy available to stimulate the rumen. It reduces dust in a mixture, aids pelleting and is a good source of minerals.
