The feeding of cane and beet molasses to livestock presents to the practical corn belt feeder a problem of comparatively recent origin.
The rapid growth of the sugar manufacturing industry within the last two or three decades has resulted in the production of large amounts of both beet and cane molasses, by-products which in the earlier days were utilized only to a limited extent.
In the United States experiments have been conducted by the various experiment stations to determine the feeding value of molasses. A survey of the available literature on this subject indicates that most of the research work has been done with cattle and horses. The investigational work covering molasses feeding with sheep is very meagre. This bulletin, covering the feeding of both cane and beet molasses to fattening lambs, therefore adds evidence as to the value of these thick liquid feeds.
