Feeding molasses is the easiest way to supply a good source of fermentable energy and sugar essential in any well-balanced diet. A molasses blend helps to maximise rumen function, stimulate fibre digestion, increase dry matter intakes which can lead to improved herd health, performance and fertility.

Feeding molasses is the easiest way to supply a good source of energy essential in any well-balanced diet to help maximise herd health, performance and fertility, as well as fuelling the rumen microbes to stimulate dry matter intakes.

Extracted from raw sugar, molasses is one of the most economical and palatable sources of fermentable energy available, making it a valuable ingredient in dairy, beef and sheep rations. Surprisingly for a liquid feed, it is also high in dry matter, and in the case of standard cane molasses up to 75%, which means it offers excellent nutrient density. Using modern blending technology NWF can offer a wide range of products which combine standard cane molasses with other liquid feeds, the result is a choice of products offering the ideal combination of energy, protein, viscosity and price to suit.


Improve dry matter intakes – Balancing the diet to include a source of sugar improves digestion efficiency, so the animal is able to consume more. This results in higher dry matter intake (DMI) and in turn higher productive output.
Regulated Release – Regulated release is patented liquid feed technology which reduces the cost of protein supplementation. Regulated release allows urea to act as a highly cost-effective ammonia source, controlling its release to mimic the behaviour of natural protein.
Reduce Sorting Add Molasses


Regumaize 44
– High protein 44%
– Suited for maize, whole crop and low protein grass silage
– Excellent source of effective rumen degradable protein and high nutrient density

Regumix 27
– Average protein of 27%
– Suited to total mixed rations where grass silage is being fed with lower protein ingredients
– Encourages higher dry matter intakes and utilisation of forage

Millspec 20
– Lower protein option at 8.5%
– Suited to systems where there is higher protein complementary feeding
– Can reduce incidences of sorting

Heating from silage or TMR’s is coming from yeasts and bacteria using energy from the feed.  Fresh-Guard is a treated Molasses blend.  By adding Fresh-Guard to your NWF Molasses ration it prevents TMR diets from heating up and causing waste and spoilage. Results have shown that Fresh Guard improves stability and DM feed intake, combating issues which arise during May-Sept when temperatures rise. Using Fresh Guard within your TMR diet is a cost-effective solution.  Utilising forage to its full potential can give huge cost savings on farm.  Due to the variation in silage quality, sampling is key to ensure animal health and productivity is not compromised.

Straw is an excellent base for ruminant diets where silage is unavailable. It is an excellent source of long fibre and there are a number of ways of improving both animal intakes and their utilisation of straw, and making it into an effective substitute for silage. NWF offer number of molasses-based liquid feeds which are purpose made and an ideal base for a feed to use with straw.

Regumix – A highly palatable molasses-based liquid rich in protein and energy, with the inclusion of urea to release at a safe rate in the rumen. Versatile for dairy, beef or sheep diets.
PotBlack – A cost-effective high protein liquid for supplying added protein and sugars to rations that are low in protein such as straw in either a TMR or for de-dusting home mixes.
Regupro 50 – Highly palatable liquid containing regulated release urea and distillery sugars, providing palatable sugar-based energy and a large proportion of rumen degradable protein.

Liquid products for sheep help increase dry matter intakes of the ewe prior to lambing.  Adding sugars to the ration helps aid fibre digestion.  The low substitution rate of molasses will increase nutrient supply close to lambing.

Sheepmol – A high sugar higher energy liquid feed now incorporating Glycerine
Sheepmol Plus – Sheepmol with the addition of a trace element and vitamin package

Molasses are available in both Mini Bulk (1000 to 4000 litres) and Bulk (5 tonnes to 27 tonnes).

If you are thinking of using molasses for the first time, and you want to see if it works for you and your livestock, then ED&F Man offers a tank trial scheme. NWF can help with on-farm storage and feed-distributing equipment, from 30-tonne storage tanks to smaller plastic containers, and fixed and portable feeders.  These high-level tanks are convenient to use and allow more cost-effective bulk purchases to be made.  DOWNLOAD the Molasses Storage Tank Information Flyer.
