molasses

thick syrup obtainable as sugar cane, beet, citrus or wood molasses. All contain 50-55% sugar except citrus, which contains 42%. All are low in protein but high in minerals. The common form is black treacle, a biproduct of the cane sugar industry. Used as a feed supplement to supply additional energy. Because of its high carbohydrate content and palatability it is a common cause of carbohydrate engorgement in cattle. It is also a common cause of polioencephalomalacia in cattle in feedlots.
