Effect of a Molasses-based Liquid Supplement on Gastrointestinal Tract Barrier Function, Inflammation, and Performance of Newly Received Feedlot Cattle Before and After a Transport Stress

Abstract Summary: "Stress from weaning, feed restriction, transportation, and gastrointestinal acidosis can cause inflammation and intestinal damage, resulting in decreased absorptive capacity and immune defense capability. Gastrointestinal inflammation has a significant catabolic cost and causes nutritional resources to be directed away from anabolic processes. Molasses-based liquid supplements have the potential to improve gastrointestinal tract (GIT) barrier function in stressed, newly received [...]

Supplementation of Molasses-Based Liquid Feed for Cattle Fed on Limpograss Hay

Abstract Summary: "Seasonality in forage production may limit the quantity and quality of forage. Even when forage is available in the period of scarcity, protein might still be a limiting nutrient in animal performance. Feed supplementation is a powerful tool to adjust nitrogen (N) levels in the diet of ruminants during critical periods. Urea is commonly used as a source of [...]

A Review Regarding the Use of Molasses in Animal Nutrition

Abstract: "In the past fifty years, agriculture, and particularly livestock production, has become more resource-intensive, with negative implications regarding world environmental status. Currently, the circular economy 3R principles (to reduce, reuse and recycle materials) can offer many opportunities for the agri-food industry to become more resource-efficient. The closed-loop agri-food supply chain has the great potential of reducing environmental and economic costs, [...]

Nitrogen Fertilization For Corn

Nitrogen Within Plants Nitrogen is a significant component of several important plant and animal metabolic functions making it one of the basic building blocks for all living things.  It plays a vital role in protein synthesis, photosynthesis, DNA, and many other important life functions.  Nitrogen is found in the backbone of all amino acids which are grouped together to form protein. [...]

Flies in Cattle Production

As we transition from spring to summer, everyone (cow/calf, stocker, feedlot, and dairy producers) must develop a fly control plan for their operation.  Historically, the economic loss from flies alone is approximately $3.5 billion from reductions in animal performance.  Losses can be minimized by using simple management strategies that can help control the fly population. There are three fly species that [...]

A spoonful of sugar for your crops

Feed and invigorate plant and soil microbial life with N-Forcer. Add some sugar to your crops… The sugars in molasses serve as a chelating agent, allowing nutrients to be more available to plant and soil microbes. Also, nitrogen can accumulate by adding carbohydrates to the soil in the form of molasses. This accumulation occurs through the growth of azotobacter and [...]
