molasses...........

Something we have been using in the drought............mix it in a tank with salt, water and urea
pour it into the lick drums............
Molasses gives the cows energy, urea helps convert the feed that they are getting better, salt (stops the mix fermenting in the heat)
We do big mixes and fill all the drums about twice a week...............
The cows love it.............so keen for it they will even come and lick it while I am still filling the drums...........
PROBLEM.............
where we are getting out molasses has no further supply............no idea where we can get this from.............just another issue to deal with.............
feel like I am drowning this week............
other issues to deal with on top of the drought...............life still has to go on no matter what.............problems become much harder to deal with as the emotional toll takes hold.........this has been going on for far to long....................

please only comment if you know where we can find molasses in central/north western NSW...........
Catch you later
