How to get the most from Dengie Hi-Fi Molasses Free

Hi-Fi Molasses Free is a straight feed and although alfalfa is abundant in natural nutrients a source of broad-spectrum vitamins and minerals should be added alongside to ensure a balanced diet such as Leisure Vits & Mins or Hi-Fi Balancer. Hi-Fi Molasses Free may be fed dry or dampened with water, or a soaked product such as Dengie Alfa-Beet. To use Hi-Fi Molasses Free as a forage replacement, replace your forage on a weight for weight basis with Hi-Fi Molasses Free.
