Abstract Soybean molasses (SBM) is a byproduct of the manufacture of soy protein concentrate and has high energy value. This byproduct has a high potential for use in the nutrition of ruminant animals, mainly in the replacement of other energy feeds such as corn grain. The objective of this study was to evaluate the inclusion of SBM to replace corn grain up to 30% dry matter (DM) in the total diet on growth performance, feeding behavior, carcass characteristics, and meat quality of feedlot…

Cyanobacterial blooms and strains absorb carbon dioxide, drawing attention to its use as feed for animals and renewable energy sources. However, cyanobacteria can produce toxins and have a low


Soy molasses as a feed ingredient for finishing cattle
Soy molasses appears to have feed value equal to or greater than that of soybean meal when compared on a protein basis and its value as a source of supplemental nutrients appears to be greater in steam-flaked diets than in high-moisture diets.
Performance and Metabolism of Calves Fed Starter Feed Containing Sugarcane Molasses or Glucose Syrup as a Replacement for Corn
It can be concluded that the replacement of corn by 5% or 10% sugar cane molasses or 5% GS on starter concentrate did not impact performance, however it has some positive effects on rumen fermentation which may be beneficial for calves with a developing rumen.

Molasses may need to be evaluated on a case-bycase basis to determine feasibility as an energy substitute for grazing dairy cows.

Lucerne-fed lambs had significantly (P < 0.001) higher dry and organic matter intakes, grew faster and had higher levels of volatile fatty acids in their rumens than lambs offered the mixed ration, although there were no differences between rations in dry andorganic matter digestibilities.
