Molatek Molasses Meal is made up of 75% high-quality molasses (high brix) absorbed on 25% sugar cane pith. It is high in energy making it suitable for a wide variety of rations.

ADVANTAGES:

  • Given the synergistic effect of sugar with other starches in increasing animal production it is a good replacement for 10 – 20% of grain in rations.
  • Can provide some of the fibre needed in rations when roughage is in short supply.
  • A rich source of minerals, trace elements and especially B vitamins in a highly absorbable form.
  • Easily mixed ensuring high-quality molasses in a manageable form.
  • Reduces the dustiness of the diet, therefore increasing feed intake.
  • Serves as a good binding agent when making pellets.
  • Increases feed intake due to palatability and improved feed texture resulting in increased production.
  • Has no negative impact on rumen pH as in the case of starch.
  • Increases fatty acid production in the rumen resulting in more energy available for production.
  • Increases microbial protein production resulting in more protein being available for milk, meat and wool production.
  • An excellent energy source on pastures/veld because it has a lower pasture replacement effect than grain.
  • Prevents dry gallsickness.

APPLICATION:

Horses:

  • Two kg per horse per day, together with good quality pasture or roughage, supplies an excellent energy ration.
  • On poor quality pasture or roughage, provide half a kilogram of sunflower or soya bean oil cake in addition to the 2 kg of Molatek Molasses Meal per day to help supplement protein deficiencies.

Cattle, Sheep and Goat Feedlots:

  • Use up to 24% Molatek Molasses Meal in cattle rations and up to 15% in sheep and goat rations to make it more palatable, contribute to the energy and bind dust.
  • Rations mixed with Molatek Molasses Meal assist in the adaptation of animals.

Dairy farms:

  • Up to 15% Molatek Molasses Meal can be mixed into dairy cattle and calf rations.
  • Makes rations mixed on-farm more palatable ensuring higher intakes.
  • Molatek Molasses Meal-based rations can largely satisfy the energy requirements of young animals.

Game:

  • Include 6 to 12% Molatek Molasses Meal in complete and semi-complete game diets to increase palatability and therefore intake.

Production and Maintenance Licks:

  • Molatek Molasses Meal can replace grain completely in all on-farm lick mixes.

On-Farm Feed Pelleting:

  • Molatek Molasses Meal can be included at 4 – 10% in the pelleting process as a binding agent.
