Operating in over 12 countries, we supply a range of innovative molasses based liquid solutions to Animal Feed, as both a compound feed ingredient and as a liquid that can be fed directly on farm.
Molasses is used extensively worldwide, as a feed ingredient in the manufacture of compound feeds (pellets, meal and chaff) and mineral blocks, due to its excellent pellet binding qualities, palatability (taste and aroma) and high energy value characteristics. The natural properties of the gums in cane molasses enhance the binding of feed ingredients within a compound diet and help reduce dust levels, leading to a better quality finish of the feed.
UM Molasses Marketing also manufacture and market a range of high energy molasses based liquid coatings with added vegetable oils that enhance the physical appearance, flavour and taste of both livestock and equine coarse diets. In addition, we manufacture a range of carbohydrate-based liquid coatings for use on both extruded and coarse pet foods. All of our coatings are made to unique formulas designed to produce a finished feed that retains a moist, shiny appearance with enhanced aroma and taste.
Molasses also has wide spread use on farms as a complementary feed material, due to its excellent palatability and nutritional characteristics, helping improve intakes and reduce ration sorting, which supports more efficient milk and meat production. This by-product of the sugar industry provides an easily digestible source of energy and nutrition for a wide variety of livestock.
Molasses can also be used as an effective energy supplement and de-duster on hay and straw. A range of high performance molasses blends are available with increased levels of protein and reduced viscosity characteristics for ease of handling.
