Westway's Molasses and Liquid Feed Department uses pure sugar cane molasses, an important by-product of sugar cane processing, to produce Suga-Lik® brand feed products. Pure sugar cane molasses is an excellent source of readily available and digestible carbohydrates (sugars), which is the basis of its feed value. In contrast to cereal grains, sugar cane molasses contains a significant amount of calcium, potassium, magnesium and sulfur. It can also contain naturally occurring B-vitamins. Sugar cane molasses is known to increase the palatability of various types of feed rations and can significantly reduce the dustiness and segregation of the ingredients of many rations.
Some people object to the thought of using liquid supplements because of the term “liquid”. To them, the idea of hauling and feeding water makes little sense. Fact is, we agree! Suga-Lik® products contain much more dry matter than silage or, for that matter, pasture. A substance which is a liquid does not necessarily make it high in moisture. To understand this concept, consider liquid cooking oil, which typically contains less than one percent moisture.
Suga-Lik® liquid supplements are the leading choice of cattlemen in the Southeastern United States for their beef herds’ pasture supplements. Suga-Lik® products are also extensively used as a supplement in total mixed rations for dairy cattle. Over one hundred different formula Suga-Lik® products are researched, developed, formulated and manufactured by Westway. They include products intended for use as pasture supplements, as well as products to be blended into mixed rations for both beef and dairy cattle. In addition, the Company offers special mill mix products for use by commercial feed manufacturers.
Suga-Lik® Supplements deliver a variety of vital nutrients and feed additives to livestock. To learn more about Suga-Lik® products, please visit the Beef, Dairy and Mill Blend sections for some general product descriptions.
The Suga-Lik® Beef Supplement product line is now Fully Fortified®. This means that your forage can be supplemented with one of Westway's Fully-Fortified® Suga-Lik® supplements to provide at least 100% of all the essential nutrients your beef cows require.
Suga-Lik® products are available in truckload and rail tank car quantities. A dealer network throughout the Southeast and other areas of the Eastern United States can provide Suga-Lik® products in smaller quantities and delivery to your feeders.
