Molasses Is Feeding Aid, Says Olson Livestock Will Eat More When It Is Mixed With Grain. , Experiences of farmers indicate that beef cattle may be fed G to 10 pounds ot molasses per heiid daily when it is mixed with grain or roughage, according to information received by Andrew Olson, county agent, from Rex. Beresford, extension animal husbandman at Iowa State college. Mr. Olson explained that when such amounts of molasses are fed it ,is necessary to mix it with grain, silage or ground fodder or chopped hay. Molasses in small amounts may be self-fed more conveniently. Eat More Molasses. Fattening calves or yearlings ordinarily will consume about IV., to 2M pounds of molasses per head daily when it is self fed, while heavier cattle may eat as much as 3 pounds per day. When the grain is limited or dropped entirely from the ration, the cattle will eat more molasses. Mature cattle, however, ordinarily will not consume more than 5 to 6 pounds of molasses per head daily and calves or yearlings more than 4 to 5 pounds, unless it is mixed with other feed. Some farmers have been feeding 1,000 pound cattle 8 pounds of molasses per head daily. The molasses was mixed with about 10 pounds of crushed corn and. cobmeal. In addition, about 2£ pounds of cottonseed meal, 20 pounds of silage and 2 to 3 pounds of clover hay per head daily Were fed. Other farmers have been feeding a mixture of equal parts by weight of ground oats, cracked shelled corn and molasses., Mr, Beresford reported that one farmer with cattle on full feed, fed IB pounds per head daily of this mixture and 2 pounds of soybean oilmeal. Proves Successful. Mixing molasses with silage, shredded or ground fodder or chopped hay has proved especially successful at the beginning ol the feeding period or with plain cattle on a short feed. Mr. Beresford says that several lots of cattle fed this way have consumed up to 10 pounds of molasses per head daily. In each case, a rather heavy allowance, usually 3 to 4 pounds per head per day, of cottonseed meal \vas fed. Owners of cattle on feed 70 days on such a ration reported satisfactory gains and no digestive difficulties among the cattle. Farmers interested in more detailed information on feeding molasses to cattle, horses, sheep or hogs may obtain a mimeographed leaflet, "Molasses for Livestock Feeding," by Mr. Beresford from the county agent's office or by writing to the extension service at Iowa State college. /.v ;^7 ·\':y^A S,*.
