Molasses blends can play a valuable role in dairy rations this winter. Georgina Chapman, Technical Manager with ED&F Man Liquid Products says there are five very good reasons to choose molasses blends.

Molasses blends are high in six carbon sugars which are more highly rumen fermentable and more effective at improving fibre digestion, increasing microbial protein production and stimulating rumen fungi, which is especially beneficial with this year’s high fibre (NDF) and lignin silages.
